Dig For Fire: Art Inspired by the Pixies at C.A.V.E. GalleryJuxtapoz // Thursday, 08 Sep 2011
Tomorrow night, September 9, C.A.V.E. Gallery of Venice, California, in association with Thinkspace Gallery, present Dig For Fire: Art Inspired by the Pixies, a group show curated by Kevin Titzer. Most people we know will vouch that the Pixies are worthy of a dedicated art show.
C.A.V.E. writes, "The Pixies have been acknowledged as one of the most influential bands in the genesis of alternative rock. Their visionary exploration of a diverse amalgam of musical styles evolved into their own dissonant sound. The much anticipated Dig For Fire exhibition is a celebration of this creative ethos."
“Dig for Fire: art inspired by the Pixies” is the second in an ongoing series of music themed art exhibitions curated by Kevin Titzer. The first installment was in 2005 and was titled “Snowball in Hell: Art inspired by They Might Be Giants”.
Regarding the theme of “Dig for Fire”, the curator stated, “I actually believe the Pixies are a much under rated band for their influence on visual art. This is kind of my small gesture to acknowledge that. You always hear that old Velvet Underground analogy with them, but I don’t think you could’ve walked into any university art department in the 90’s and not heard the Pixies music playing somewhere. They still inform the work I make today and I don’t think I’m alone”.
