The Pink Show is an outrageously simple concept: we are stripping the meat off the usual curatorial group show carcass of political complexity, and playing with a cute little chew toy combo instead. This group of wildly diverse artists has been gathered at great effort and expense, just to reflect upon one happy color (in this case, Pink) in their own personal way. It may just be a drop of the color pink on the nose of a confused bunny rabbit, or a complex Lego world gone leather-disco gay. We’re asking the controversial question: can very contemporary art live in the same room with cartoon surrealism, and various types of traditional narrative art, without the room bursting into flame?

We get a little queasy wondering if while hanging the art, we might find works complimenting each other by happy accident, or be stuck in a retina-straining house full of horrors filled with pieces abstractly at war. Either way, we like the tension of the merry-go-round of possibilities.
