Art is an invitation. Art is for everyone. If you like art, video games, brain teasers, graphic novels, zines and thinking about how the world works, this is a contemporary art show for you. You’ll enjoy the catalogue too which is full of images from the show, conversations about art, and Marc Ngui’s inimitable illustrations.

Scott Carruthers draws... and draws, and draws. Working fast to bypass moments of self-censorship, he fills the walls with immersive, potent iconography. Crystal Mowry is creating her own miniature version of the gardens of Versailles. A small camera travels through the installation, broadcasting the hypothetical point of view of tiny people, riding in a tiny carriage, through this fabrication of a fabricated landscape. Marc Ngui, known primarily for his work as a graphic novelist, has been making drawings based on concepts in the hefty theoretical tome A Thousand Plateaus: Capitalism and Schizophrenia by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari. All the works in this show are signposts to a thought process, a body of knowledge, or a frame of reference. Join us!
