Zombie Inspired Art Happy Hour
Zombies, art and an open bar converge at Pivot Art + Culture! Two curators—one of contemporary art, the other of science fiction + popular culture—will explore the current Pivot exhibition ‘The Figure in Process’ in a zombie-inspired talk using Jonas Burgert’s massive, otherworldly landscape ‘STÜCK HIRN BLIND’ (on view now) as a jumping-off point.
Come, have a drink (or two), see the show + brush up on your art history via an evening of not-so-serious dialog aimed at unpacking some of the art theory behind ‘Zombie Formalism,’ a phrase coined by a noted art critic to describe trends in contemporary abstract painting, and the Zombie Apocalypse phenomenon.
