"A HISTORY OF REPEATED INJURIES AND USURPATIONS" with NATHAN MANUEL
2011
Vox Populi, Philadelphia PA

D.Billy & Nathan Manuel manipulate found objects, images, and texts, and stage & record ridiculous situations to create very important artworks swathed in outdated pop-cultural and art-historical references, interwoven with half-baked conceptual and narrative threads, and rife with inside jokes and trivial amusements.

Their exhibition at Vox Populi, A History of Repeated Injuries and Usurpations, drew connections between the cities in which they have lived and worked -- New York and Washington DC -- and the city of Philadelphia, in which they have not.
