Exhibition: Jillian Mayer: TIMESHARE

Tuesday, Mar. 19th - Saturday, May. 11th
FREE; From: 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM Saturday: 1-5PM

Jillian Mayer’s practice continually explores how technology affects our lives, bodies and identities through investigating the blurred lines between our physical and online worlds in regards to dependency and value. While growing up in Florida, one of the sea level states that stands to face global warming head on, Mayer has been inundated with a lifetime of hurricane seasons and alerts. In this exhibition, Mayer continues her exploration into survivalist and prepper subculture tendencies that stem from her personal experience as well as a general more global experience of environmental disaster.

Exhibition: CAGES / LOGGING

Wednesday, Mar. 20th - Sunday, Mar. 31st
FREE; From: 11:00 AM to 05:00 PM Sunday: 1-5PM

Visit the gallery for the Cages / Logging exhibit – which composes two parallel narratives that explore the processes by which nature becomes a material space charged with intellectual emotion. From the exploration that compels us to search for the natural sources that will provide us with our building materials, to the actual manufacturing of the skin that protects us from that same environment, Cages / Logging offers a unique vision of the privilege and responsibility that we have in the design of our spaces.

SunSquabi has gained national attention for their unique way of producing music. The band’s live show can be described as an ‘Electronic Hydro Funk Experience’ that is different every single time out. SunSquabi continues to break down and analyze the expectations of what a “Live-Electronic” band should be. The band unveiled their debut EP with All Good Records, titled, ‘Odyssey’ which featured artists GRiZ and Dominic Lalli of Big Gigantic. Their 2nd EP ‘Deluxe’ was a sophomore success with the label that continued where Odyssey left off.

Tuesday, Apr. 2nd
$10 – $12; From: 07:00 PM to 11:30 PM

Growing up in small-town Saint Joseph, Mo., brothers Darrion “Dee,” Isaiah and Soloman Radke enrolled in rock ‘n’ roll high school as their ticket out of Nowheresville. The brothers played their first show opening for Fishbone in 2011 and haven’t looked back since. In 2013, the Cat & Mouse and Devil Fruit EPs took Radkey from sweaty backroom punk gigs to storming the UK’s Download Festival and Riotfest in the U.S. 

In 2015, Radkey released their debut record, Delicious Rock Noise. The result was an across-the-board detonation of several shades of rock, punk and wild abandon – and riffs, riffs, riffs. Having kicked off 2018 with new music, Radkey’s sound has continued to expand and mature, reflected in the sleek guitar and growing bass on their new tracks “Not Smart” and “Basement.”
