A Place for All My Art

07:30 pm
NOISE Gallery
http://noise.center

NOISE Contemporary Art Gallery proudly presents A Place to Put All My Art, a solo exhibition by St. Louis-based, Israeli born artist Edo Rosenblith. The title of the exhibition playfully references a George Carlin bit about homes as storage units for all of our stuff, highlighting the imperative of consumer accumulation that drives our society. Featuring prints, paintings, artist books, and animations, Edo draws from the history of cartooning and caricature as heavily as he does the work of similarly-inspired artist Phillip Guston. Edo’s work consistently features grotesque and distorted portraits and relies on his facility as a draftsman. Edo’s work interrogates and criticizes the process of accumulation directly through neoliberal capitalism and indirectly through the machinations of the art market, all without losing an exuberant passion for making itself.

Join us for an opening reception from 7:30 – 10 PM on Friday May 3rd and enjoy refreshments, camaraderie, and Edo himself, live and in the flesh! As always, gallery viewing appointments can be made and queries sent to [email protected] and more information can be found at http://noise.center

A quick reminder, copies of NOISE 1: Things That Aren’t, NOISE 2: Output Sabotage, Videogame Ads in Comics Volume 1: 1982-1985, One-Two Punch, and Pulse and Pulsar are available for purchase at Friends of Art Bookstore and online at http://noise.center/shop

Come hang out with us 5/3/19 and see some incredible art!
