PaintFX @ Antena
Digital artists Jon Rafman, Parker Ito, Micah Schippa, Tabor Robak and John Transue are bringing their online collaborative project PaintFX to Pilsen’s Antena Gallery. I’m pretty curious how (or if) the transition into physical space will be made, and what that’ll do to the artists’ digital-kitch aesthetic. I’ll be checking it out at the opening on Friday, February 18th from 6-10PM @ Antena, 1765 S Laflin St.
