Everyone at the ARC is pretty jazzed about the new HATER Magazine exhibit currently up in our space. The show features six talented artists (Aaron Casas, Matthew Oberpriller, Fabian Owens, Veronica Ramos, Isaac Solomon and Tim Spencer) presenting their work in a gallery for the first time as well as the lovely Lisa Marie Godfrey (if you’ve been in our office space, she’s the one responsible for the cool cardboard tress!). The theme of the show is hate, and the artists provided very thought provoking perspectives of how they see hatred in their worlds.
The exhibition kicked off with a monster opening reception on June 25th. DJ Cashless rocked the house with old school hip hop, soul and R&B jams, Dee Dillman of Kaboom Books provided the delectable pasta salad (truly to die for!), St. Arnold’s furnished the beer and the latest HATER mag was everywhere (check out a peek of the issue here – the highlighted page has an article written by one of the featured artists about one of the other featured artists). The night was a HUGE success.
In case you missed it (or if you just want to relive the fun), watch the video below, made by our superfly intern, and check out the event photos on Facebook. Finally, for full artist bios, check out the Spacetaker event page. The latest issue of HATER is available at various locations through the city including Aerosol Warfare Gallery, The Tipping Point, The Art Institute of Houston and Caroline Collective, among others. The work will be up until July 30th, so be sure to drop by the ARC to grab an issue of the magazine and get your hate on.
