Von Ammon co Announces “Home Sweet Home,” a Solo Exhibition by Artist Tony Hope

December 9, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm EST


Von Ammon co is pleased to announce the opening of Home Sweet Home, a solo exhibition by Detroit-based artist Tony Hope. This is Tony Hope’s second solo show with Von Ammon co and the gallery’s twenty-eighth project in its current location.

The opening will take place on December 9th between 6-8pm at the gallery and can be viewed during our regular hours (Saturday-Sunday 12-6) until January 14th.

Tony Hope (b. 1989, Redford, MI) is a multi-disciplinary artist living and working in Detroit, Michigan. Raised in a city emblematic of quicksilver economics in post-industrial America, Hope’s practice bridges video, sculpture, painting, installation, and collage to create maximalist interpretations of cultural malaise. Often playing off iconic 90’s franchises, media, and consumer goods, Hope turns nostalgia into phantasmagoric dreamscapes. The artist’s works serve to simultaneously elevate and expose exurban rituals: the county fair, the technicolor strip mall, the seasonal streetside Halloween inflatable or nativity scene. There is a contradictory nausea and celebration inherent to his oeuvre which lays plain a uniquely American way of being in a sector of the country largely excluded from highbrow cultural discourse. Hope creates a new poetics of the Rust Belt: mystic and fearful, carnivalesque and pliable.
