About the Exhibition

Brian Kaplan’s work is part of an extensive project documenting space and place on Cape Cod in the off-season. The idea of the Cape as an idyllic tourist destination is challenged by Kaplan’s stark views of shuttered motels and abandoned detritus. Piles of televisions, rows of lamps, and discarded fireworks take on a life of their own as they represent the transient nature of leisure time as well as the often invisible industry that makes such escapes possible. Works on view at Danforth Art reveal Kaplan’s unapologetic observations of what remains when the vacation ends.
