Brutalism, Air Fresheners, and Augmented Reality: Around Cleveland’s Front International Triennial, Part 1

Though the Oberlin-based artist Johnny Coleman’s most noticeable piece at the triennial—a sound installation at a church in the city’s Glenville neighborhood featuring the voices of residents telling stories—is located outside an institution, viewers at MOCA will still find Upon Reflection (2), 2018, pictured here. The piece features a telescope with an iPhone attached; the phone plays a livestream of the church’s doors, making Glenville visible to people in University Circle.
