During the last six years, British artist Paul Noble has invented a city. Named for its creator, Nobson Newtown comprises extremely large and meticulously crafted pencil drawings, each depicting a different building or location within Noble's fictitious industrial town built on the edge of a forest. Although they are precisely rendered in realistic detail, Noble’s creations are much more than a feat in naturalistic representation. They embody the sly wit that characterizes the best of British satire.

Laylah Ali is an artist known for her small gouache drawings that ask complex questions about race, politics, and power. In the work, Ali presents seemingly simple comic book-like figures who follow orders, fight, negotiate, and lead other group members. Yet upon closer inspection, the allegiances of the uniformed characters are not as clear as they first appear, revealing complicated interpersonal relationships and ambiguous circumstances.
