Façades aims to negotiate new understandings of public and private space in relation to community, class, and gender. Not unlike an ethnographic researcher, Brittany Shepherd seeks out and captures poetic happenings and patterns in the city, selecting materials and imagery that serve to elevate the mundane to the realm of fine art. In the process, boundaries between “high” and “low” forms of image and culture are dissolved, offering the audience a new critical perspective on the “class” of images.
