Chris Jones on The Creators Project

Andrew Nunes reviews Chris Jones’ third solo show in New York on The Creators Project.

For his ongoing solo exhibition at Marc Straus Gallery, a motorcycle, a free standing ‘tower,’ and a series of apartment reliefs made of re-contextualized printed images fill up the gallery’s ground floor.
