"Here’s a group show designed around a provocative concept involving 15 artists from around the country. Proof! We’re Gone is organized by two recent Herron grads, Derek Larson and Jon McGlothin. Its theme is based on what they call “the Experience Economy,” an era in which every business is a stage and companies must design memorable events for which they charge admission. All consumption, McGlothin and Larson say, can be understood in experiential terms and memory itself becomes a product.
This show will travel to other cities in the coming months, but you can see it take shape here. Opening reception is May 4, 6 p.m.-midnight and a panel discussion will be held May 5 at 1 p.m.
Big Car Gallery is located in the Murphy Arts Center in Fountain Square, 1043 Virginia Ave, Ste. 215. Call 317-450-6630 or go to www.bigcar.org for information.
