A Mistake is a Beautiful Thing
A collection of images by and of artist Devin Troy Strother and designer Yuri Ogita.
Offering a glimpse into the artists’ daily life—collages in progress, spilled paint, graffiti, bootleg tattoos—the photographs are accompanied by short and often humorous captions.
Moving through a set of recurring motifs, the sequence of images builds towards a nuanced dialogue that examines art and its references, cultural phenomena, and the experience of being a person of color in the United States.
