VAGRANT SPACE is an ongoing curation for a new generation of Outsider Artists. This new school no longer fits the caricatured confines of the self-taught, emotionally troubled, and uneducated recluse promoted by the Folk Art gallery world. Coming of age during the transformative years of globalization, internet proliferation, and social media, these artists share the affects traditionally ascribed to social outsiders: many of them don’t utilize contemporary social media skills, eschew the responsibilities of “maturity”, and most importantly, genuinely reflect the homelessness that is hallmark to this era of twenty- and thirty-year-olds.
Art from Adam Void, Peter Dear, George Charles Bates, Andrew H. Shirley, Jefferson Mayday Mayday, Chelsea Ragan, Craig Mammano, Jeffrey Vincent, Dylan Thadani, Edwards Harper, Margaret Rogers, Emily Campbell, Misha Capecchi, and Safwat Riad.
This show is a The Superior Bugout Joint

MOB RULE - March 20 through 23, Southern Graphics Conference, an annual print conference, will be in Milwaukee, WI. In conjunction with SGC, the Degenerate Arts Collective, a group of Milwaukee artists are organizing a temporal-spacial experiment originating, but not limited to Jackpot Gallery in the Riverwest Neighborhood of Milwaukee. Our objective is to create a living environment that celebrates creative dissent and revolt. To serve as an opposition to the dominant culture industry, which is limited both aesthetically, and intellectually. The project gains materiality at the means of production of print and weaves together a rhizomatic form of cultural production from these four elements:
* A screen-printing workshop. * Fine art prints to cover the walls. * The creation of a hyperbolic atmosphere that implies a break with normality. * A parade with the intent of distributing the one color screen-printed posters through wheat pasting, stapling, and handing out images.
Come see some new prints from Adam Void, and participate in the unruly chaos of MOB RULE.
Gallery 101 is presenting emerging and established artists in a group exhibition of activist-based video, painting, drawing, print, photography, sculpture, and performance.
The Idle No More movement is about Indigenous rights, the immediacy of social media and sharing “a vision of bringing together all people to ensure we create ways of protecting Mother Earth, her lands, waters and people,” (From the INM Web site).
At Gallery 101, we have been greatly inspired and moved by the Idle No More movement. Artist run centres began because artists needed spaces where they could question the status quo artistically, politically, socially, and culturally. 30 years later, we must ask ourselves have we become another in a long line of artistic institutions? How can we become more accessible and vibrant? One answer from Gallery 101 is the “flash mob art show”, Create This Revolution.
Twenty artists have been selected by our jury panel: Howard Adler; Jaimie Koebel, Laura Margita, and Heather Wiggs.
Howard Adler, Marc Adornato, Pansee Atta, Priti Cox, Alan Harrington, Rachel James, Kaylene Kelly, Helene Lacelle, Emmanuel Laflamme, Juliana McDonald, Rehab Nazzal, Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen, Ben Powless, Mana Rouholamini, Bioni Samp, Svetlana Swinimer, Jeffrey Thomas, Laura Leah Traverse, Lori Victor, and Adam Void.

"Adam Void included just the kind of crudely scrawled psychopath note that tends to warms the cockles of my heart. Feast your ears on this ladies and gents:
This guy is involved in some political type stuff, but I won't hold it against him."
