LACOSTE, France-The SCAD exhibitions department presents "ALLEZ ALLEZ,
" a solo exhibition by SCAD M.F.A. painting student Jonathan Yoerger featuring a site-specific installation. On view through Aug. 26 in Blue Gallery at SCAD Lacoste, "ALLEZ ALLEZ" includes a new painting and installation of appropriated artifacts and ephemera. The selected works draw inspiration from French film, media and sports. His otherworldly imagery and unique characters reveal the artist's interest in pop and consumer culture.
