Library Street Collective (LSC) is proud to present the first Detroit exhibition for FAILE, the Brooklyn-based artist collaboration between Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. The show’s title, The Size of the Fight, references Mark Twain’s quote, “It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog,” and relates to the city’s impressive comeback over the past few years. FAILE is inspired by the resilience, passion, and energy they see the Detroit community bringing to the city's infrastructure and art scene.

LSC has transformed a formerly disused alleyway near the gallery into a public exhibition space called “The Belt” and welcomes one artist per year to display a series of panels as part of their Public Matter program. FAILE will mount five large-scale painted, stenciled, and silkscreened works on wood panels that incorporate textile design patterns, images of urban signage, American Folk Art elements, abstract grids, and typography.

The artist reception will open Saturday, June 24 from 6-8PM, along with a reception / afterparty for Public Matter in The Belt from 6-11PM.
