DESCRIPTION

(Venice, CA) C.A.V.E. Gallery is pleased to present "Dig For Fire - Art Inspired by the Pixies", a group show curated by Kevin Titzer and presented in association with Thinkspace.

The Pixies have been acknowledged as one of the most influential bands in the genesis of alternative rock. Their visionary exploration of a diverse amalgam of musical styles evolved into their own dissonant sound. The much anticipated "Dig For Fire" exhibition is a celebration of this creative ethos.  

Regarding the theme of "Dig for Fire", the curator stated:

"I actually believe the PIXIES are a much under rated band for their influence on vi sual art. This is kind of my small gesture to acknowledge that. You always hear that old Velvet Underground analogy with them, but I don't think you could've walked into any university art department in the 90s and not heard the PIXIES' music playing somewhere. They still inform the work I make today and I don't think I'm alone." - Kevin Titzer
