This Saturday, September 25, is the fourth NEPO art event, this time a “Back to School, Back to Earth Special.” The event is at the NEPO House, 1723 South Lander Street, from 6:00 pm to 12:00 midnight. Curator Klara Glosova describes this edition of NEPO as follows:
“NEPO 4 is about learning. Inspired by the plight of guinea pigs, our brave artists stepped into the role of model organism and subjected themselves to all kinds of experiments (voluntarily or not). The role of our show is to make their failures and successes public, “with the expectation that discoveries made in the organism model will provide insight into the workings of other organisms”. These new discoveries will be presented in the style of a Natural History Museum, where exhibits will contain live humans (performances), objects and missing objects (some exhibits may be temporarily shut down due to lack of funding).
Warning: The museum also serves as a metaphor for our art world, and world in general – and it might reflect its current state!”
NEPO events usually include visual art, music, poetry, and more. Each event has a different theme. You can see images from the last NEPO event here.
