Infrared Roses (2018), a group exhibition at Portland’s Sleepy Hollow Fine Art, ran between November 16 and December 16, 2018.
The show features work by Mario Miron, Willie Young and Mac Katter, filling the space with a delirious meeting of sci-fi futurism, DIY trash aesthetics, pop and countercultural interpolations with a tinge of humour. The comic style of the exhibition extends to the press release, which consists solely of a screen-grabbed comment thread from a Jerry Garcia fan blog. On it, commenters speculate on whether Garcia had ever met science fiction author Philip K. Dick, making for an accidental work of conspiratorial online fanfic.**
