***ONE WEEKEND ONLY ****
Join us for an exhibition of prints and collaborative artist book release by Miriam Dubinsky and Alicia Obermeyer.
Prism Pop is a collection of visual conversations between Miriam and Alicia. Using free association lists and compulsive drawing, the two have created a sugar-fueled landscape for goofy cartoon faces to morph into mythological creatures and objects.
Alicia is an artist living and working in Chicago. Her projects include one-off drawing zines and immersive installations investigating celebrity, camp, and femme iconography with a psychotic cartoon aesthetic. She exhibits in local small press expos with a collective of artists called “Pubes & ‘Tudes.” In addition to Prism Pop, she is co-editing an anthology of drawings by regional femme freaks to debut at CAKE. She co-organizes a DIY art space called Learning Machine, located in Bridgeport.
Miriam is an artist and printmaker currently residing in Denver, Colorado. She grew up in San Francisco and received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2012. She’s currently exploring the bright, artificial and manufactured colors which remind her of candy and the palette of her teenage profession, an ice cream scooper. She plays with her forms and, as if her medium is a punch-line, her final works coax the humor from the lives of her current and former pets. These themes appear in Miriam’s work through both digital drawing, printmaking techniques and painterly compositions.
Sugar snacks will be provided.
