Slap 2


Dates:
Tue Nov 17, 2015 19:00 - Sat Nov 28, 2015

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

One of our most popular shows is returning for round 2. "Slap" is back with more of the dopest DIY stickers from New York and around the world. Stickers as graffiti have become a ubiquitous part of the urban experience. Slapped onto subway stations, pickup trucks, disconnected phone booths and bus stop print ads, stickers have allowed anyone with a sharpie and a shipping label become a full-fledged street artist. "Slap 2" will celebrate sticker culture by covering our entire gallery in the medium.

The Con Artist Collective is accepting unlimited submissions of stickers for "Slap 2" until Nov. 13th at https://goo.gl/D1N6Kq. Our last New York show featured work by many well known sticker makers including Bäst, Faust, Edec, Mint & Serf, and hundreds more. We've put together an incredible team, with help from Robert Aloia Outlaw Arts, Hugh Burckhardt, and Paul Arbs from Urban Hooker

Dates: November 17th through November 28th
AT: Con Artist Ludlow Gallery, 119 Ludlow St.

Glitcha


Dates:
Wed Oct 21, 2015 19:00 - Sat Oct 31, 2015

Location:
New York, New York
United States of America

In the realm of systems, glitches indicate a rupture or change of state. They demonstrate the buggy nature of a given order, tearing apart the superficial layer of logic that is taken for granted, exposing its unstable core. In our technology-driven society, a powerful glitch has the potential to uproot our most basic patterns and ruin our way of life.

Because of this, yes, we should fear the Glitch.

Nevertheless, a glitch allows us to recognize the system through its failure. Letting go of details clarifies the big picture. In this way, a glitch can potentially trigger awareness, understanding, and perhaps an eventual solution.

On July 8, Wall Street shut down and United Airlines had to land all of its inland planes, in one generalized malfunction that some attributed to a cyber-attack. Most, though, assumed it was due to asking too much to the (outdated) computer systems used, a massive error now being openly known as “The Great Technical Glitch”. Through these occurrences, the concept of Glitch continues to enter the public domain.

In “Glitcha” members from the collective display new works in a variety of media that explore the mechanics of a system breaking down.

In the tradition of truly awful threequels, we are beating a dead horse, getting blood from a turnip and bringing you the same old same old one more time for CONICON III. WORST. CONICON. EVER. We will leave no stone unturned, kill off main characters, introduce forgettable sidekicks and forget plot lines altogether in our attempt to quench the nostalgia of our stunted adulthood and you will like it! Stay tuned true believers!
