James Benjamin Franklin: Something in Mind

Katy Donoghue

7 February 2024

James Benjamin Franklin is infamous for his relentless material exploration, and his newest exhibition is a continuation of this effort. “Something in Mind” at Proyectos Monclova unites found textiles including carpets, kitchen rags, bathroom mats, plaster cloths, sand, and glitter. As noted by curator and historian Andrew Satake Blauvelt, some of the items Franklin uses are acquired as new—while others are sourced from Detroit thrift stores and the artist’s own home. In the process, Blauvelt remarks, “the prone canvas instead becomes a seedbed to collect remnants of everyday life or the detritus of the artist’s life.”
