Minneapolis – Saturday July 26, 2014, 7:00 – 10:00 p.m. – Grand finale of Gamut Gallery’s “Post Mo’ Bills.” This event brings to close a one-month exhibition of prolific local street and poster artists. “Post Mo’ Bills” will be on view at Gamut Gallery every Thursday and Saturday from 2:00 – 6:00 p.m. through July 26th.
Please join us on July 26 for an evening of music, interactive art and live screen printing, beginning at 7:00 pm. Jackson Kenny of The Abstracted will be conducting live screen printing demonstrations throughout the night. Guests will have the opportunity to purchase a T-shirt featuring a commemorative print for ten dollars, or for five dollars, they may bring in any cotton garment to be printed on (even the shirts off their backs). Visitors to the gallery are also encouraged to post their own bills on the community collab wall, while The DJ Bob Marino delivers a 90’s musical history lesson with a decidedly urban tone. Marino’s signature mix of hip-hop and house will keep our community of artists and art lovers feeling upbeat.
Gamut Gallery was transformed into a graphic communications hub through the display of editioned screen prints and wheat paste installations. The exhibit has issued a challenge to civil authorities’ warnings to “post no bills” – the criminalization of regular citizens posting messages or handbills in public space. Curators Erik Farseth and Jade Patrick ask: How is someone supposed to find their lost cat? How should political activists communicate their messages supporting social change? Where is the place for artists’ expression in the public space? Right now the answer is at Gamut Gallery.
