Midnight Repairs

This play was produced as part of Jay Isaac’s exhibition “Midnight Repairs” at Paul Petro Contemporary Art, Toronto, which ran from September 6 to October 5 2019.

Midnight Repairs is a multi-format exhibition consisting of small and mural-size paintings, small- edition prints, a poster and a play that combine overt graphics with obscured symbologies, examining where understanding and consumption intersect. The work contends with both the current dilemma of producing luxury objects within a compromised system and the improbability of accurate artistic and social communication within the same system.

softcover, saddle stapled, colour, edition of 50.
