Megan Whitmarsh Plans Exhibition


"I am a child of the '70s whose sense of furturism is informed by Star Wars... a future with entropy, and drug use, and weeds growing in the cracks between the scratched Plexiglass windows of geodesic domes."

So says Megan Whitmash, and the visual artist will bring her words to life on February 21 when she unveils a new exhibition, The Fucking Crap of Life, at the New Image Art Gallery in Los Angeles.

As can be surmised from the exhibition's name, the theme here is junk—piles of it, to be displayed all over the gallery. "When I make a giant mountain of handmade trash, I am lost in the fun of making and feel like a kid building a fort," she says.

Works by C.F. and Matt Furie will also show. An opening reception will take place on Saturday, February 21 from 7 to 10 p.m., and the exhibition runs through March 21.
