Vindicating Facades - New Works by Dylan Lilla


  • Project Project 1818 Vinton Street Omaha, NE, 68108 United States

Project Project is pleased to announce the opening reception of Vindicating Facades featuring new works by Omaha artist Dylan Lilla. Lilla will be showing new sculptural pieces that confront an ongoing internal understanding while struggling with external, seemingly opposed foe(s). Please join us in celebrating Dylan and his work.

As always, Project Project opening receptions are free and open to the public. 

From The Reader:
Fences protect us-either to keep things out or keep things in. Dylan Lilla is inspired by the literal fence that surrounded his home and the metaphorical fence he’s built inside. 

Lilla’s new solo exhibition at Project Project is the result of the breaking down of these fences. The old boards and posts that stood in his yard now live as sculpture and installation, symbolic of a new life that Lilla has after recognizing a more fluid sexual identity. As part of this exploration, Lilla is also embracing the use of color. Inhibited because of color-blindness, he is discovering what he is capable of. With this endeavor, Lilla will push himself to venture outside of the fences that kept him safe, yet restricted.
