Curated with Justin Samson
March 24–April 29, 2006
Last month, on the night of February 3, we had so much fun at LOYAL when Lucky Dragons, DreamHouse, Kites, Mat Brinkman, Xander Marro and Justin Samson all made the journey to Sweden to join us for a special evening of music, film, and art. At the time we had Eddie Martinezs acclaimed exhibition up, so we had to wait until NOW to do the full art-show with them.
On March 24 LOYAL tranforms itself into Welcome Home, a group exhibition which brings together the dynamic work of artists who chop up our culture and sew it all back together. Like ROBERT, Justin Samson's amazing life-size sasquatch-like creature, you also see it in the collages of Justin, Brian Belott and Larry Carlson, the poster art, drawings and comics of Mat Brinkman, Xander Marro, Ryan Riehle, Miles Huston, and Christopher Forgues. The skill and simplicity of their work crackles with imagery that makes you feel as though youve gotten a glimpse into the future using a 1980s time travel device.
On opening night we will screen The Black Sabbath Movie assembled by CHRISTY KARACAS in which 40 artists made one minute videos for each of the minutes of Black Sabbaths legendary album Paranoid featuring artists DEARRAINDROP, PAPER RAD, MELISSA BROWN, NOAH LYONS and more. We put the projector on at 8pm so be there at 6pm to see the art while the lights are still on... This video has only been shown a few times! NOT TO BE MISSED!
