Justin Shull presents The Workshop, a one-evening event featuring his recent projects, sculptures, a new video installation and live music mixed by DJ War Horse. For The Workshop, Shull examines the architecture of an artist’s hypothetical space. The studio, gallery and recreational landscape converge in a raw warehouse at 5538 Dyer Street in Dallas, the result of which is a series of distinct interconnected spaces - The Showroom, The Workshop, The Game Room, The Den, The V.I.P. Lounge, The Washroom and The Parking Lot.
