Containment Policy at Pterodactyl this weekend!

curated by Dr. K. Malcolm Richards, Jon F. Allen, and Rodney Thoms
August 27 - October 1 2011

A multi-media event examining the general containment policy that confines, refines, and defines how humans conduct and are conducted through their lives in the early twenty-first century via institutions that bind. From carefully contrived cubicles in the work place and the processed packaged food we consume to the surveillance cameras ...that record our whereabouts and the psychiatric pills that standardize our minds and wills, this exhibition will explore and explode the categorical imperatives that rue and rule our daily existence.

Opening August 27 8-12

Also featuring sound man and DJ David S. Aponte

Closing October 1 8-12

Samuel Fuller's "Shock Corridor" with lecture/discussion by the curators.
