WAX NOSTALGIC: 1994 curated by Chris Breeden

Art exhibition at BLDG
Show opens August 17, 7 - 11 p.m.
Exhibition dates: August 17 - September 14
BLDG Gallery | 30 West Pike Street, Covington | KY 41011

Wax Nostalgic: 1994 celebrates a year that defined a decade. From the wicked to the whack, ‘94 spawned some of the most compelling and memorable moments of an entire era. Thus Wax Nostalgic: 1994 is an art show and homage to the 90s’ wildest year.

Guest curated by Chris Breeden, the show features over 50 artists who reminisce on popular art and culture of 1994. It was a time of hella highs and bogus lows and the best way to deal was to party on through. Some remember it fondly, others would rather forget – but all are invited to celebrate what turned out to be one helluva year.

Unheardof + Dalek: Ten Year Anniversary Party

Super high fives to our friends at Unheardof on their 10th anniversary! Sharing this event to help spread the word. If you're a collector of street art, sneakers, skate decks or just plain old cool this is one party you don't want to miss. We'll certainly be there, so should you! 

Collaborative release includes:

  1. Two limited edition skateboard decks (1/50)
  2. Limited edition hanging space monkey screen print
  3. Unheard-of x Dalek Space Monkey collaborative t-shirt release

Dalek (James Marshall) Bio:
Merging animation, Japanese pop art, and an urban aesthetic, James Marshall is best known for his Space Monkey character - a strange, vaguely humanoid mouse that he would depict in an array of bright colors and twisted circumstances, often wielding a butcher’s cleaver. Working under the name Dalek, Marshall expressed his ideas through the Space Monkey character until 2007, when he began working in a purely abstract style. He has always been engaged in skateboard and graffiti subcultures and Marshall cites his two-year apprenticeship under Japanese artist Takashi Murakami as a formative experience.
