Omni Consumer Products, Fight Club Soap
For those of you who might be in New York on Thursday, November 15, this opening should be pretty strange and fun.
"As Real As It Gets" is a group show I organized for the wonderful nonprofit gallery Apex Art. An exploration of "imaginary brands and fictional products," it includes works (including new commissions) by Shawn Wolfe, Conrad Bakker, Dana Wyse, Kelli Anderson, Beach Packaging Design, Ryan Watkins-Hughes, Steven M. Johnson, and the U.S. Government Accountability Office, among others. Attractions include a speculative retail soundscape via Marc Weidenbaum/Disquiet Junto, and the ongoing production of Shawn Wolfe's RemoverInstaller™ object on a MakerBot Replicator 3D printer. [RW]
