Kid Mutiny

June 13 - July 13
Opening Reception: June 13, 7 - 9pm

curated by Ellen Tani
curatorial project mentor: J.W Mahoney

Featuring work by Peter Chang, Brandon Hill, Debbie Yarrington, Andrew Wodzianski and Steven Strawn

Kid Mutiny takes a sampling from a movement both fascinated with the material culture of childhood and rebellious against what it told us to be. Stimulated by the burgeoning subculture of vinyl toys and escapist narratives, the show objectifies violence as a plaything, a readily available commodity in an apocalyptic world. Mutations of gender and form, fiction and reality, and man and machine create fantastical narratives far darker than those we enacted as children.
