The amazing San Francisco based artist Alec Huxley has given EK an exclusive look at his solo exhibition titled “Astronomical Menagerie” now Displaying at 111 Minna Gallery. The Opening Reception is tonight October 4th, 5pm – Late and the work will be on display through October 26th so don’t miss it!
Alec Huxley and his incredible surrealist work are no stranges to 111 Minna or Empty Kingdom, having been featured on April 2012 and as part of 111 Minna’s 20th Aniversary show last September.
October 4th – 26th
The anonymously futuristic intersect with the animal kingdom in “Astronomical Menagerie”, a new solo exhibition from Alec Huxley. At the witching hour, fashionable figures in space helmets rendezvous with wild beasts in the empty streets of San Francisco. As animals are central to our perception of humanity, relationships of power and domination juxtapose with naked reminders of human frailty. Confident in our ingenuity, we float about cities at the apex of species. Absent our imagination and material protections, we stand vulnerable beside creatures functioning solely to survive.
