Oliver Hess and Allison Behrstock

Flint Public Art Project welcomes L.A.-based artists Allison Behrstock and Oliver Hess for a month-long stay at Stone Street Residency. Behrstock’s creative practice focuses on participatory engagement to address systemic inequities and processes of dynamic change. She has been visiting local community gardens in LA for the last few years, documenting them to reveal a narrative structure around resilience and resistance, and has collaborated on durational projects expanding public space through urban farming both nationally and internationally. Hess’s work investigates the hidden infrastructures that support our world, the implicit hierarchies, natural and manufactured, that create the reality that sustains us. His projects attempt to identify and recast these forces through technology and alternative sensual modalities.
