The Exhibit Lasts through the end of the year of 2017

Often one sees no other answer but to break the law. This is an exhibit about artists that work while embedded within a system that provides no outlet for them. This is done for various reasons, some art is considered illegal just by making it, obscenity for instance. Other times artists shop lift or acquire materials by spurious means (often called obtanium here in San Francisco). Some artists steal ideas of forge artworks. There is a place artists often land where they see no way to continue with their work without breaking the law. Often artists start their career breaking the law as a way to lash out at a system that negates their existence and leaves no place at the table for them. I was inspired to be an artist by the space left open for ambiguous works that aren’t shoe-horned into a fixed category. A field that is open to just about anything, unlike most careers.

The exhibit will consist of photo documentation, written, videotaped and oral stories, reenactments, ephemera, sculptures, legal support talks, a confessional and more.

The curatorial committee of Kal Spelletich, Darryl Smith, Laurie Lazer, Alicia McCarthy believe that during such preposterous times this exhibit is even more vital, essential and significant than ever.
