Working outside the lines of a singular practice, James Enos wears the role of artist, curator, social activist, educator, public programmer and more. Urban Entropy is an ornate record of work made during Enos' time in graduate school from 2002-2005 at The New School of Architecture and Design and from 2006-2009 at The University of California San Diego, with the remainder of the works opening into the progression of his post-graduate school practice. Within his multi-disciplinary practice compiled of sculptures, drawings and socially programmable architectural structures, Enos discusses an often invisible side of our landscape. Focusing on questions of civic identity and collective strategies for social change he gives a poignant critique of what he describes as urbanization's fundamental aesthetic problems.

Mega Exhibition Reception

Saturday, November 16, 6:00 to 8:00 PM. In conjunction with four concurrent exhibitions that also focus on the subject of the landscape. Complimentary for OMA members, $10 for nonmembers.

Akin to the variedness of his artistic career, Enos holds multiple degrees including: a master's degree in architecture and a subsequent master's in studio art. Enos' master's degree in architecture is a prominent influence reflected within the tight construction and precision seen in each work. No matter if you are inspired to look further into how your city is constructed, zoned and aesthetically considered, or if you enjoy the calming beauty of his work's repetitive forms and symmetrical balance, you will come away with new considerations of the word 'landscape'.
