DESCRIPTION

HORSIES AND HIPPIES! new works by


DALE HOYT incl DRAWING collaborations with STEVE THURSTON

and his VIDEO 'Commencement Address to the class of 2012'.

And

MONET CLARK feat Chrome guitarist HELIOS CREED

in a performance/video piece: in a GRATEFUL-ACIDPUNK-EDELIC


Hoyt says of his "Commencement Address For The Class Of 2012 “It is equal parts Aldus Huxley and Mr. Rodgers. Originally entitled "Dr Leary's Malpractice Suit" It documents an aborted psychedelic experiment and, believe it or not, my actual feelings.”

Clark’s GRATEFUL-ACIDPUNK-EDELIC is a performance/video piece in reverence of the Psychedelic to Acid Punk subcultural evolution of San Francisco. It is the next installation of her semi-autobiographical series Look Book where she uses the visual language of the fashion world to depict iconic subcultural characterizations. This diptych references how San Francisco's transmutative Psychedelic subculture and alchemical unbridled creativity, has impacted culture at large. Examples include the expansive vision of Grateful Dead lyricist John Perry Barlow's influence on the digital social world he coined as Cyberspace; and the deconstruction of the American art form Rock n' Roll by the late 70's avant-garde band Chrome who coined the genre 'Industrial' aka Acid Punk, and whose guitarist Helios Creed exploded the possibilities of what rock guitar could sound like, an influence linage still heard on radio waves today. This piece is an homage to freedom, intrinsically part of the Bay Area's landscape and how vital it is to the advancement of culture.
