  • Artist Emily Rapport explores the “architecture of place” in her first solo exhibition of paintings at Firecat Projects.


    The exhibition, titled “Subject to Change: Urban Landscape and the Architecture of Place,” is both a documentary archive of a neighborhood undergoing physical and demographic shifts, and a painterly narrative that finds moments of sublime beauty in construction site debris and frozen mud tracks. Through her ongoing documentation of the changing urban landscape, Emily paints…
