May 7, 2012

The new and x art space located in a modest row of warehouses at 3511 Locke Street near the cultural district will be used for exhibiting installation works of artist collectives and collaborative projects.

 

City Zoo continues at brand 10 art space with works by Frances Bagley, Susi Brister, Clayton Hurt, Victor Romao and Tanya Eakins Spolans. The overarching theme of City Zoo looks at artist’s use of animals or animal-like elements in their work to create empathy, sentiment, nostalgia, tenderness, curiosity and admiration. Various themes include: human and animal forms to investigate questions of man’s relationship to himself, other beings and his environment (Bagley); photographic work of anonymous figures wrapped in densely textured or patterned synthetic textiles inserted into various landscapes as mysterious organic forms (Brister); animals and their relation to food as an entertainment event (Hurt); human and animal hybrids, chronicling deeds anonymous, shadowy malefactors, and images of bucolic setting permeated with disturbing feelings of the surreal, uncanny and ferocious (Romao); exploring the meeting of technology, nature and culture and  the cause/effect of war and politics (Spolans).

An opening reception, at both brand 10 + and x exhibition spaces, will be held on Friday May 18 from 5-9pm.
