Brad Troemel
Concealed Carry

Concealed Carry features new work from Brad Troemel’s ‘Silk Road Objects’ series. Troemel has been collecting, replicating, and growing artifacts purchased from this anonymous online black market since 2011. For this exhibition the artist has placed objects obtained from the Silk Road in conversation with modes of display that reflect the aestheticization of rebellion, creating a feedback loop between direct action as a sincere gesture and the inevitably fetishized forms those gestures take on in a marketplace.
