The Life and Times of Buffalo Boy
Adrian Stimson
Important collections of Buffalo Boy’s material culture have been scattered in dollar stores and private collections around the Great Plains, yet nothing has been done about it until now. Buffalo Boy is aware that The Works has undertaken one of the most complex museum projects in history, travelling far and wide to acquire the many objects to be displayed in this interactive exhibition, which Buffalo boy is certain will make a contribution to peephole understanding, material culture and universal energies. There will also be an appearance by the famed Buffalo Boy, an opportunity to take part in photographic history.

Plunderoptics
Nicole Galellis

Plunderphonics, coined in 1985 by musician John Oswald, is a term referring to hip hop trends of appropriating and altering (sampling and remixing) other artists songs to express an individual voice within the broad context of mass culture. Plunderoptics refers to Galellis’s similar approach with visual media: creating bright, evocative abstractions that start with references from everyday sights such as cartoons, ornament, advertising, tattoos, and nature. This exhibit showcases paintings and drawings, some of which are studies for lager works,to illustrate the artist’s creative process.
