Louie Chavez: “Big Fun” and A Powdered Wig Machine Decadent Double Feature Staff Pick

When: Sat., July 13, 7-11 p.m. 2019
Price: Free
Freight Gallery’s Second Saturday opening is a double whammy this month. Named after a fictional rock band from ’80s cult classic Heathers (as seen on a T-shirt worn by school outcast Martha “Dumptruck” Dunnstock), Louie Chavez’s “Big Fun” exhibition “explores the power and dangers of self-esteem and social anxiety in the lives of most adolescents.” Chavez’s pieces are overflowing with “strange creatures” and “neon slogans” with shout-outs to popular media and other “totems” that young people cling to as life rafts against the trials and travails of the teenage wasteland. The opening will also feature a screening of the final two episodes of the first season of homegrown weirdo web series Powdered Wig Machine, a surrealist interview show chockablock with DIY costumes, off-beat video editing and other oddities. PWM host Brandon Pittman will also be on hand with a few live interviews of artists, so be prepared for a slate of improvised comedy awash in profanity and other mature subject matter.
