Nicholas Hay: War After Rock and Roll
July 16 - 30, 2011
1203 West 49th Street Unit B, Austin, TX 78756
Heavy stuff: Nicholas Hay’s polemical art questions whether the consciousness of our popular culture has recently begun to place less emphasis on negative aspects of authority in favor of some sense of safety that might be provided as a result of obedience. (Yup!) Has the quest for social justice met a happy conclusion or been sidetracked by fear? (You bet!.) He’s a busy guy: showing in June at David Shelton Gallery in San Antonio, last week it was Some Local Losers at Lone Star Studios, also in S.A., which paired Hay with Richard Kelly Deaver. Now he’s spread to Austin and Red Space Gallery, an apartment gallery created by artist Caitlin G. McCollom.
