Friday, May 20th from Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

Plenty of Action, No Control, an exhibition of new individual and collaborative work by Miguel Rodriquez (Las Vegas, NV) and Phil “Syke” Shafer (Kansas City, MO), opens with a free public reception on Third Friday, May 20, 6-9pm at Paragraph gallery, 23 E. 12th St. KCMO. The opening will be followed by an artist talk on Saturday, May 21 at noon. The show runs through July 2, 2011. Hours are: Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays 12-5pm; Thursdays 11-6.

With this exhibition, Rodriguez and Shafer, peers and friends since studying together at Kansas City Art Institute in the late 90s, combine efforts to shape a dramatic, multi-media environment in which issues surrounding identity, race, politics, and pop culture are confronted. The mix of work featured – from digital prints and murals by Shafer, to sculptures and wall pieces by Rodriguez, to collaborative installation – takes cues from the entertainment industry, including cinema, theatre, and club venues; from graphic design; and from the streets.
