In American Motel Signs
Steve Fitch crisscrossed the United States documenting the colorful dynamic, advertisements inviting weary traveler to park their car and pack it in for the night. Tinged with nostalgia, these delightfully garish motel signs lovingly recall a mid 20th Century road culture speaking to a sense of independence and freedom central to the contemporary American identity. The exhibition celebrates the release of Fitch’s new monograph American Motel Signs 1980–2008
, just released by London based publisher The Velvet Cell, and the artist will be on hand to sign copies during the Opening.
