"Renegade Trigger, an Intergalactic Dilemma"

The Gun Show, a group show of contemporary art at Space B gallery, focuses on art in the context of globalized democracy and the general Americanismus inspired by greed, the war on terrorism, and the second amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Within this environment of safety, via mutually assured destruction, contemporary art is born with a similar paradox to that of its considered subject—that of the artistic appropriation of iconoclasm. This show addresses questions like “How is it possible to make art that is avant-garde while living in a pluralistic society without restrictive qualifications?”
