Société Réaliste

at P!,
334 Broome St

"A rough guide to Hell," the first New York solo show of French collective Société Réaliste,  premieres the disjointed font type "media police," here used by the artists for a room-spanning wall text of computer error messages and plastered on the gallery's vermilion awning. (For the show's duration, it's also available to download on P!'s website.) More unsettling is the group's revision of the 1949 film version of The Fountainhead, in which they've digitally removed every human being, leaving only the architecture.
