Ass Grass or Gas
@ Tiger Strikes Asteroid Chicago
319 N Albany Ave, Chicago, IL, 60612
Opening Saturday, September 9th, from 3PM - 7PM
On view through Saturday, October 14th
Sparked by an interest in vanning culture, curators Josue Pellot and Robin Dluzen explore the aesthetics of the sub-culture with this exhibition that encompasses wider ideas about taste, the vernacular, and the psychedelic.
In the gallery, Josue Pellot, Robin Dluzen, Margaret Crowley, Salvador Dominguez, Salvador Jimenez-Flores, Jourdon Gullett, Chantal Johnson and Omar Velazquez contribute works that reference customization, the vintage forms and patterns of a particular era of American-made vans, and the free-wheeling spirit that comes with complete immersion into a world with an alternate set of norms, values and attitudes.
The opening reception on Saturday September 9 will also feature a mini-vanning convention with Chicago-based vanners showing off their vehicles to the public.
