Over the past few years, Sayre Gomez has been developing a psychic map of America as seen through the cultural and topographic specificity of Southern California’s urban sprawl. The book presents a necroscape of abandoned malls and struggling small businesses. This built environment plays host to a curious ritual every October, when Halloween stores descend into the empty husks of defunct big-box retailers, thus briefly granting them a spooky resurrection. Halloween City surveys the artist's exploration of this late capitalist phenomenon and features a critical text by writer Daniel Spaulding.
