The Threat of Chance art exposition is based on the temptation of possibility. The possibility change in the face of stagnation, the possibility of hope in desperate times, the possibility alternative thought and lifestyle in the doldrums of complacency.

chris stain: Untitled, 12" x 12", handcut stencil/hand painted on steel, coated, mounted on wood frame (one of a kind)

josh macphee: propaganda art

billy mode: Psychological Profiles, 20.5" x 20.5", print on archival paper, framed, edition of 10

For this installation a railroad shanty town will be recreated to further emphasis the struggle between hope and despair. Amidst a gallery filled of shacks made with found material and walls decorated with freight trains and decaying industry you will find photographs by boxcar culture enthusiast the Polaroid Kidd. Proletarian signs, flags, prints, and banners from author/activist Josh MacPhee. Interactive sculptures, drawings, paintings and stencils, from graffiti artist Billy Mode, and the sociological display of hand cut stencils by Chris Stain. The Threat of Chance art exposition is pure socialist propaganda , (at least that's how the mainstream will see it) , so stop by opening night and they'll tear you a new asshole.

I saw this show few days ago! I really loved it and Billy Mode's work was my favorite. I walked around it about 3 times and kept finding little things written on the walls or fotos/paintings tucked away. I had fun in there.
