Tyrrell Winston to Hold First-Ever Solo Exhibition in America

Featuring discarded basketballs turned into art.

After kicking off his inaugural exhibition in Japan at Takashi Murakami’s Hidari Zingaro gallery last year, New York-based multimedia artist Tyrrell Winston will hold his first American solo exhibition at Detroit’s Library Street Collective. “Encore” encapsulates the artist’s signature style of recontextualizing discarded objects collected from urban and suburban landscapes.

From basketballs to cigarette butts, Winston imbues feelings of nostalgia, angst and speculation into his assemblages that act as reminders that “the things we neglect don’t disappear just because we’ve moved on.” Unable to find work after college, Winston began collecting discarded items around neighborhood basketball courts. For Winston, each item told a story through their physical wear.

“These found and used objects have embedded history,” Winston explains. “It’s a history that is abstract and infinite.” Presenting these “trash” objects in a gallery setting allows viewers to question what constitutes the world and presents a divide between product and artifact. Highlights of the exhibit include the artist’s sculptural installations constructed from deflated basketballs and paintings made from found tarp and steel panels.

Check out works from “Encore” in the gallery above. The exhibition will run from February 5 to April 4.
