The first edition of FRONT is an expansive program of eleven interconnected Cultural Exercises that address aesthetics in relation to political change and societal uncertainty. The exhibition will interweaves critical approaches to museum exhibitions, public and educational programs,  residencies, publications, and research strategies in a multi-venue presentation unfolding across Cleveland and its surroundings.

An American City will tease out the ways in which contemporary experiences of an urban location are shaped by historical and current events, and how a city’s collective memory and sociopolitical imperatives can define artistic and curatorial production there.
