Apocalypse WOW!

November 19 – 27, 2009

Opening reception November 19, 2009 5 – 8 PM

The University of Southern California’s Roski School of Fine Arts is pleased to present its fall senior show Apocalypse WOW!. The exhibition which includes works in painting, drawing, photography, video, printmaking, and mixed media installation will be on view November 19 – 27th at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles.

The sky is falling! The sky is falling! These familiar words acknowledge the current sense of alarmism while evoking the potential for real danger. Based on real or perceived fears, the Apocalypse takes form as a shared social psychosis.  The work in Apocalypse WOW! reconsiders this phenomenon by questioning the role of dominant structures and irreverently injecting humor into the veins of a serious subject. Working with issues as diverse as environmental vulnerability, the digitization of everything, future dystopia, and the complexity of connectedness, the young artists of Apocalypse WOW! are examining a more nuanced set of possibilities for their existence in a time of great uncertainty…while you run for the hills!

The gallery is located in room B239 and is open Monday through Friday from 12 - 5 PM.
