Levin’s most recent body of work considers the relationship between Fascism, The Aesthetic Movement and Total Design, by examining the seemingly disparate means in which each of these turn of the 20th century movements exploited beauty to advance social and political dogmas. Levin’s color schematic installation of cut-out paintings, ceramics and fabric assemblages; employ commanding gestures and tangible splendor to query the agency of beauty. Beautiful Things positions Levin as a cultural conductor, an interdisciplinary auteur assuming the role of architect and designer, engineer and artist, to conjure a zealous cultural code for an unrealized utopian state.
