The Arcade's newest gallery is Corvidae Collective, and the series of photos they've put together for this weekend's art crawl could put them in contention for the crawl's No. 1 must-see exhibit.

The exhibition, titled Modern Ruin: An International Urbex Photography Exhibit, takes photographs from various international locales (among them Belgium, Slovenia and Germany) under the guise of urban exploration, a kind of contemporary-living archaeology that lends itself wonderfully to large-scale photography. Think abandoned factories, trashed hotel rooms and old theater lobbies, but without any of the tropes that so often make this kind of work trite or cliché. Am I jumping the gun to say that the work reminds me of the large-scale photos in Vesna Pavlovic's 2011 Projected Histories exhibit at the Frist Center? It's possible. See for yourself on Saturday.

More images are below.
