Deric Carner: Range Rover

December 10-17

Opening Reception: December 10, 7-11PM

Louis V ESP is pleased to present “Range Rover” an exhibition of new posters by Deric Carner. Using cut-and-paste collage, digital manipulation and commercial printing, Carner creates large posters which inter-cut images of feral children, Kate Bush, urban revolt and privileged consumerism. As these narratives overlap and contradict, Carner confounds the given narratives of these charged visual icons, engineering a space of friction and fantasy. Carner prints these posters in open editions accompanied by a work-in-progress catalog.

Renata Espinosa will perform “Eat the Music” at 8:30 pm
