The American Trip

Philip Monk
The Power Plant
Contemporary Art

The American Trip was an exhibition curated by Philip Monk at the Power Plant 2 February – 8 April 1996.

America is fascinated by outlaws, outcasts and others who populate the margins of society. Through the work of artists Larry Clark, Nan Goldin, Cady Noland and Richard Prince, Philip Monk focuses on these marginalized groups and acknowledges the role artists play in normalizing the image of the outcast.
