MARFA-Ballroom Marfa will launch its newest installation at the community gallery this evening.
"Comic Future" was curated by Fairfax Dorn and will launch at a free event with musical performances at 6:00 p.m. There will also be a community dinner following at 8:00 at the Shade Structure.
Associate Curator of Ballroom Marfa Erin Kimmel says the exhibit brings together the work of various styles including Walead Beshty, Liz Craft, Aaron Curry, Carroll Dunham, Arturo Herrera, Mike Keelley, Paul McCarthy, Erik Parker, Sigmar Polke, Peter Saul, Dana Schutz, Michael Williams and Sue Williams.
"It is an apocalyptic vision of the future," Kimmel said. "A lot of it has been influenced by print cultural and is satirical or based in political satire."
