WE'D ALL SEEN BETTER DAYS





Friday night is a busy night if you like good art. Personal favorites of mine are showing work in three different places all on one night. Get on your bike and get 'er done.

Ad Hoc Art proudly presents...

THE THREAT OF CHANCE

starring:
Josh MacPhee
Billy Mode
Chris Stain
The Polaroid Kidd

May 2nd through June 1st, 2008
Opening Reception: Friday, May 2nd, 7pm - 10pm

The Threat of Chance art exposition is based on the temptation of possibility. The possibility of change in the face of stagnation, the possibility of hope in desperate times, the possibility of alternative thought and lifestyle in the doldrums of complacency.

For this installation a railroad shanty town will be recreated to further emphasis the struggle between hope and despair. Amidst a gallery filled of shacks made with found material and walls decorated with freight trains and decaying industry you will find photographs by boxcar culture enthusiast the Polaroid Kidd. Proletarian signs, flags, prints, and banners from author/activist Josh MacPhee. Interactive sculptures, drawings, paintings and stencils, from graffiti artist Billy Mode, and the sociological display of hand cut stencils by Chris Stain. The Threat of Chance art exposition is pure socialist propaganda , (at least that's how the mainstream will see it) , so stop by opening night and they'll tear you a new asshole.
