May 6th – June 13th, 2010 | Opening Reception May 6th, 2010 6pm – 11pm
MIM Multi-Media Art and Culture Gallery is proud to announce the opening of FAST COMPANY, featuring new work from artist Carl E. Smith. This show marks the second exhibition at the newly opened space in down town San Francisco.
In FAST COMPANY, Carl E. Smith collages icons and other colorful particles from contemporary visual culture and the industries it comes from. Music, fashion, technology, print; fast-moving industries where the newest-hottest obsolesces its own previous iteration–Smith moves even faster to cull, cut and capture icons and particles from trade publications and reconstitutes them into fantastic and colorful compositions. Butterflies, bubble gum, bombers, glossy lipstick; suspended symbols mash up like raw snapshots right from dreams.
