Tiny Bubbles is a group exhibition curated by independent curator and former gallerist Steven Wolf. The show features nine artists known for producing dark and often funny narratives set in imaginary worlds filled with characters that mirror their own searches for meaning. "Like bubbles in a glass of champagne, the effect of sharing space with these dramatically different worlds will be one of prickly effervescence," says Wolf.
With projects ranging from a multimedia installation by media and video game artist Porpentine Charity Heartscape to a new video collaboration by regional luminaries J. Otto Seibold and Boots Riley to audio by the anonymous prankster Longmont Potion Castle, Tiny Bubbles is sure to challenge and delight visitors.
