Neo-Tang opens Saturday, May 7th at Co-Prosperity at 6pm - 11pm

Neo-Tang is an ambitious group show curated by Max Morris and Paul Nudd that consists of paintings, drawings, sculptures, and performances by some of the Midwest's most daring and vibrant (mostly) underground artists.

We look at the theme of Kool-Aid and fake Tang as a cultural phenomenon, as a vehicle for cyanide and LSD, as a low-brow consumable and post-war chemical wonder.  The larger themes, we suppose, are artificiality and fakeness, the current unnatural order of things, cultishness and chemical mind expansion, the endgame, the invasion of plastics in our minds and environment, processed culture and the deliberate policy-driven framing of information.

Participating artists, including the publication:

Tom Torluemke, Jimbo Easter, Bumbo Krawczyk, Bailey Scieszka, Chris Riddell, John Maggie, Molly Colleen O'Connell, Mac Blackout, Keith Herzik, Sarah Leitten, Thelonius Bone, David Leggett, Bruce Conkle, Anonymous Alcoholics, Emma Akins, Onsmith & Nudd, Public Collectors, Gina Herzik, Ruby T, Charles Roberts III, Haylie Jimenez, Amanda Joy Calobrisi, Andy Douglas Day, Chris Cajero Cilla, Emma Punch, David Alvarado, Sam Hensley, Eddy Rivera, Earwig H Hairplug, Sam Szabo, Max Morris, Math-You Land-Vote, Allie Trigoso, Amy Lockhart, Nayef Nebhan, Mony Nunez.
