This is one of those shows that really makes me wish I had spent more time working on bending the time/space continuum.

Jon Beinart - one of the finest curators in this star system and an insanely gifted artist on top of that - brings together the absolute crème de la crème of fantastic and surreal art for his Dystopia group show:

Kris Kuksi, Chris Mars, Viktor Safonkin, Laurie Lipton, David Bowers, Heather Nevay, Sandra Yagi, Carrie Ann Baade, Stephanie Henderson, Heidi Taillefer, Brian Viveros, Santiago Caruso, Mark Powell, Jon Beinart and many, many more.

The two works I selected won't be on show per se from what I can gather from the preview but I love them too dearly and it's really just to illustrate the insanely wide spectrum of great art you'll get to see at Dystopia.

Also: Kris Kuksi and Laurie Lipton will be signing copies of their new books at the opening reception!

Futher details below.
