For those who thought Generation X only begat apathy, irony and the philosophy of whatever, artist Travis Dodd offers some imagery to shake up the stereotype. His series of photographs printed on vintage blueprint paper in TRAVIS DODD: THE MACHETE, continuing Sun., JAN. 27, depicts bleak urban spaces where comely young things raise fists, scale walls, hoist machetes, gyrate and pose against distressed backdrops. The art's let's-start-a-revolution attitude suggests Che Guevara meets Diesel jeans, and while it may not inspire Gen X to change the world, it shows the eternal sex appeal that defying the status quo has always had for dissatisfied youth.
