Cast & Crew at Farewell Books

This month long showcase will feature a curated collection of almost entirely found objects. Ranging from Mid-Century Modern American chair designs to antiquated hand tools, each piece has undergone an act of deconstruction, manipulation and reconstruction - resulting in an array of both functional and non-functional sculptural works of art. A vast majority of the collection features the elctrifiying hue that Cast + Crew catalogs as “Marfa Red.” A color that can be easily recognized by anyone who has visited their gallery in Marfa, TX.

Cast + Crew is based in Marfa, TX and operated by its co-founder’s Cody Barber and Jenn Creager. Barber and Creager met while attending Texas Tech University in Lubbock, TX. Founded in September of 2011 - Cody and Jenn have worked as a collaborative force in all realms of art and design. They are best known for finding and editing iconic furniture designs by Charles and Ray Eames and Harry Bertoia. While some of their work is newly fabricated, the majority is found, altered and redistributed. Often properties of aging and previous use are cloaked in a limited palette of metallic and fluorescent finishes that Cody and Jenn have branded over the course of their collaborative time spent in West Texas.
