I know it can be a little hard to see what's going on in the photo, but that's an art gallery full of bikes—oh so many bikes. And should you want to see this exhibition with your very own eyes, you'll have to head over to The LAB at 16th and Capp between 8-11pm tonight for the closing night party.
The aim of this exhibition is to explore the concepts, principles, and ideas that the bike has inspired, transgressed, or altered.
Join us for a fun and inspiring weekend celebrating that most versatile machine, the Bicycle. Artists recycling bicycle parts, making work inspired by the bicycle or building their own hybrid machines include Johnny Payphone (clockwork bike); Keith Martin; August Wood; Loid Mongoloid(bike slot machine and jewelry); Jay Broemmel (slouch cycles-altered bikes); John & Sarina Raffa; Slim Buick (custom vintage bikes); Paul Cesewski (Kinetic bike sculptures); Kal Spelletich (Turbo Trike); Yoli Hadde; Neil Smith & Justin Solomon (Black Label Bike Club, Oakland); and Jarico Reesce (Cyclecide), among others.
