> DESCRIPTION

THIS PROJECT IS INSPIRED BY THE RECENT HOUSING & ECONOMIC MELTDOWN. SINCE IT SEEMS WE WILL ALL BE LIVING IN A CARDBOARD BOX SOON, WE DECIDED TO BE AHEAD OF THE CURVE. WE’RE HAVING AMAZING ARTISTS CREATE THEIR DREAM CARDBOARD BOX HOME.

PLAZTIK MAG & THEIR FRIENDS FACTORY FRESH HAVE CREATED A SITE SPECIFIC SHOW & HAVE BROUGHT TOGETHER ARTISTS INTERESTED IN CREATING CARDBOARD BOX HOMES & THEIR INHABITANTS. THIS GROUP IS JOINING TOGETHER TO WORK ON TRANSFORMING THE ENTIRE GALLERY INTO A CARDBOARD WONDERLAND.

KEEPING IT TO FACTORY FRESH STANDARD THE ARTISTS WILL BE WORKING TOGETHER ON SITE FOR TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO SHOW TIME TO BRING YOU THE UNEXPECTED. THE DIVERSE GROUP OF CONTEMPORARY & URBAN ARTISTS, MOST OF WHOM HAVE NEVER MET EACH OTHER, WILL EXPRESS THEIR VISION IN CARDBOARD FOR THE FIRST TIME.

TO ALL OF US AT PLAZTIK MAG & FACTORY FRESH THIS SHOW IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES… WE DON’T KNOW WHAT FLAVOR TO START WITH! SHOULD WE START WITH URBAN LEGENDS LIKE WANE.ONE & JAES of C.O.D CREW? OR DAMON JOHNSON WHO’S BEEN CALLED THE NEXT ANDY WARHOL.
OR MAYBE…
BARNEY’S FAVORTITE ARTIST KIM PIOTROWSKI! BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE! WHAT’S ALISON CORRIE HIDING BEHIND THE CANDY WRAPPER? OOOHHHHH… AND THERE’S NO TELLING WHAT SURPRISES WILL COME FROM SKEWVILLE, SCOTCH 79 a.k.a. KEO, SICK BEAR ATE HIS PAW IN DISPAIR, BLUE BABY DESIGNS, CISCONYC, MORGAN SHEASBY, ALLISON MALINSKY, AND NOAH SPARKES.
