Caught Up in The Branches | Avery Mags Duff and Matt Kurtz

Two Akron-based artists come together to explore city trees and the surrounding detritus and debris that they live in. Avery Mags Duff and Matt Kurtz create very different work, but it is tied together through their interest in robust and overgrown plant life in Akron, and natural hideouts and holdouts throughout the city.

Threading connections between small, immediate personal stories and large, political/fabled narratives, Alejandro contextualizes them together, flattening the distance between the stories that consume our lives and what we can
