ABOUT THIS SHOW:
When the world gets too weird to comprehend, art and design of the moment reflect that. Weirdness is becoming the new norm. In light of forced detachment from pre-COVID lives, HOT BED has gathered the latest perspectives on the new and unfamiliar. WACK! invites artists and viewers to lean into the absurdity of our present moment. The artists in this exhibition fearlessly embrace how “wack” life in Philly has become and show us what wonderful things this weirdness creates. WACK! rethinks what art is and should be, and offers visitors a new way to engage with art and the weirdness of the world today. HOT BED invites visitors to be bold and leap into the wild worlds of WACK! with us. Don’t be shy, Philly: let’s get weird!
