Positioned outside the SCOPE Pavilion walls and visible from the West Side Highway, Robert Montgomery’s new work delves into our collective unconscious with his melancholic The City is Wilder Than You Think, 2012. This large, site-specific text work engages dialogue through the Situationist concept of detournement, which hijacks advertising space in the city, often illegally, and replaces the advertising with poetry.
