Title Magazine reviews H. John Thompson’s Holding Our Own

Title Magazine has a great review of NAPOLEON member H. John Thompson’s show Holding Our Own from this October. Olivia Jia writes:

John Thompson’s Holding Our Own at the Napoleon Project Space deals with our society’s enduring, nostalgic fascination with historical calamity. As ancient cultures turned to gods to justify the inexplicable phenomena of the natural world, we are likewise fixated on understanding the unknowable. Through sculptural woodworking installations, Thompson builds an environment for the personal contemplation of contemporary legend, addressing different mythologies in popular culture.
