To Hold

Brian Kritzman and Kim Cridler
January 13 – February 24, 2018

“A basic human instinct to hold is to transform the unknown into a known world – to shift wild to tame. The simple action of grasping brings one towards knowing, while sensing the inexplicable in what is held. To Hold, unifies the inspirational basis of the individual practices both of Kim Cridler and Brian Kritzman. It celebrates the action of holding, its subtleties, and implications.”


Simone DeSousa Gallery is pleased to present Stitches, a 40-page limited-edition color gallery book published on the occasion of Mark Newport’s solo exhibition Stitches, on view at Simone DeSousa Gallery in Detroit, Michigan, from January 13-February 24, 2018. The book includes a new essay by Nicole Archer, Assistant Professor in the History and Theory of Contemporary Art at the San Francisco Art Institute, where her teaching explores politics and aesthetics through close examinations of style, embodiment, and desire. Archer researches contemporary art and design, with an emphasis in modern textile and garment histories.
