Taking its title from the 1984 album of the same name by the British pop band Love and Rockets, Seventh Dream of Teenage Heaven explores the way life is charged with an underlying awareness of the passage of time marked by the physical, aural, and visual residues of our culture. These inquiries are situated within larger contexts of modernism, postmodernism and what has been called the condition of super-hybridity. The exhibition considers how we relate to the past, live in the present moment and think about the future.
January 27, 8 p.m. Immediately following the opening, artist Ben Kinsley and psychic Larry Copeland lead a participatory event of paranormal proportions to initiate Kinsley's ongoing exhibition work exploring the sonic means of transdimensional influence. All are welcome and encouraged to take part!
January 27, 9 p.m. - 1 a.m. Join us afterward for
