Drinking from the Snake’s Mouth is an exhibition of new collaborative works by artist Steven Vainberg and myself. The culmination of a seven-month long dialogue initiated while residents of ACRE, this exhibition situates the viewer at the crossroads between the tender, the holy, the profane, the creative ego, aggression, “watersports,” and heavy metal through painting, sculpture, video, photography, and a Tumblr blog.
The publication of a small catalog will coincide with the exhibition. Catalog contents were developed from a collaborative Tumblr, D.f.t.S.M [Contains Explicit Content], and includes an essay by Dr. Andy Campbell (Senior Lecturer, Texas State University; Art Editor, The Destroyer Magazine).
