Assemble, a new gallery at 5125 Penn Avenue in Pittsburgh, PA, has a mission – to provide a place where people can engage their intrigue through hands on activities while making “physical and nonphysical, community connections.” Described as a community space for arts and technology, it seeks to encourage interaction through events such as live performances, weekend workshops, and open studios where visitors can work on projects. This month, they join the neighborhood Unblurred Gallery Crawl with the show Animals Eating Animals.
The exhibition features work from artists Ross Hardy, Joe Mruk and Jordon Wong. Described as an “examination of the ongoing cycle of consumption observed by all animals”, it looks at how all living things – from the tiniest organism to the largest mammals – must endure this cycle.
In conjunction with GA/GI (Geek Art / Green Innovators), the gallery will also present Post-Digital Explorations: Material Inconsistency by Benjamin Rice, a series of architectural design experiments. The collection looks at constructs that attempt to “move beyond typical notions of kineticism and flux, and into a realm that is fleeting and provisional.”
Animals Eating Animals and Post-Digital Explorations: Material Inconsistency will be on display Friday, May 4 from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. during the Unblurred Gallery Crawl. The events are free and open to the public.
