CON-Figuration

March 18 - April 22, 2017




We put the Con into configuration.
Criminally intense, disturbingly dense, amplified, distorted, unreal, uncomfortable, weird, and sexy.
Art for this deformed time.

Paintings by CANYON CASTATOR
and CHRISTIAN REX VAN MINNEN.
Sculptures by AGATHE SNOW.
Tapestries by ERIN RILEY.
3D renders by SHAMUS CLISSET.

"In dark times will there also be singing? Yes, there will also be singing about the dark times."

- Bertolt Brecht
