PULL YOUR COAT TO THIS
May 6 - 29, 2011

Humans live with an innate desire of belonging and inclusion. This along with reaction or more extreme rebellion has fueled moves into tight-knit groups and subcultures. Tacit communication within these groups is necessary and adds to exclusiveness and bonding. PULL YOUR COAT TO THIS (1950’s Harlem jive for “let me tell you something”) features four artists whose work deals with secret handshake business between specific people and their “on a need to know basis” signage. Michael Bizon, Erin Zona, Anders Johnson, and Alee Peoples draw from the language of hobos, Lesbos, fabricated groups and recluse madmen. Among these groups sense of humor, myth, horror and sex are specific codes, winks and nudges that otherwise go unnoticed by the population at large.
