The Abrons Arts Center is proud to present the solo exhibition of Sean Micka, titled Condition Report: Deregulation, from February 7 – March 16. The current Whitney ISP fellow (2012-2013 and 2013-2014) will present a series of paintings based off of Landsat imagery of Antarctica, the Amazon and Saudi Arabia. Micka's work focuses on late-capitalism as a 24/7 phenomena, as well as the accumulation of wealth and uneven geographic development. By examining the ways in which the landscape and animal species have been exploited towards human utility and economic need Micka, through the criteria of geography, visually formalizes the internal contradictions that structure hegemonic orders.
