“Knut Hybinette and Troy Richards: Nowheresville”

Runs through March 8 at Thomas Robertello Gallery, 939 W. Randolph; 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Wednesday-Saturday or by appointment

Society is broken, violent anarchy persists and meth addicts swarm suburban yards in Hybinette and Richards’ dystopian vision of Ripon, Wis., in the near future. The town founded as a utopian burg along Charles Fourier’s socialist philosophy and put on the map a decade later as the Republican Party’s birthplace has, in this imagined trajectory, run out of ideas and succumbed to violent crime and despair.
