PLUGGED OUT: New works by Salvador Jiménez Flores

 PLUGGED OUT: New works by Salvador Jiménez Flores

Opening Friday June 24th from 6pm-10pm
June 24- July 23, 2011

This experimental mixed-media installation highlights the reliance of modern humanity on technological innovations. In this digital age, we have become wholly dependent on devices that can be plugged in. Our jobs, our social lives and even our food production—all aspects of our existence rely on technology.

We are so intertwined with our iPhones and Androids it is as though we are becoming like them. This hardwiring of our hearts and minds will surely rob us of our humanity.

Is this thing on?: the art of comedy

I am curating this art exhibit. Feel free to submit work. /////MC

A call for artists:
"Is this thing on?: The art of comedy"
Art exhibit at Cobalt Art Studio in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, Opening in August 2011

"If Jesus had been killed twenty years ago, Catholic school children would be wearing little electric chairs around their necks instead of crosses."
- Lenny Bruce

Art is too serious sometimes. This show will focus on what makes us laugh. Most of us are part of the system and work 40 hours+ a week and by the weekend we just want to unwind and be entertained. Artists will create work for you that is both funny,  absurd and will make you think.

 Acceptable formats include: video, performance, installation, audio, painting, drawings, and objects. There is no fee. email submissions with video/audio links or jpeg attachments  to antenapilsen@gmail.com

Deadline: July 10, 2011

Cobalt Studio is an artist run space. Studio artists, Adriana Baltazar and Antonio Martinez work separately and collaborate on occasion to produce thoughtful public art that is meaningful for it's communities. As a project/exhibition space, Cobalt's key purpose is to provide exceptional artists, established and emerging, with an opportunity to showcase their work in a gallery-like atmosphere minus the commercial pressures and b.s.
