The Distillery Gallery, in conjunction with Overkill Studio, presents "Grew Up a Screw Up," a lo-fi/hi-tech collision resulting in video, mixed media, appropriations, visual remixes, internet art, installation and more.
Curated by Overkill Studio's Thomas Buildmore (responsible for bringing the ever-successful "Paint it Now" exhibit back in August '08), the show will take advantage of the unconventional gallery space and celebrate non-dependence on the dwindling commercial gallery world. Themes of hyper stimulation, obsession, elitism, simulated depravity and hypocrisy are examined through the works of this group of mulit-faceted artists while the role of the critic is called into question. "This is going to be a show of work that I really like," says Buildmore, who is a visual artist himself with frequent exhibits in Boston, NYC, and Philadelphia.
Please join us on July 10 from 7-10pm for site/time-specific elements of this month-long show.
