July 5—Rose Briccetti

Incendiary Devices
A Kamikaze Show at PØST
July 5, 2018; Reception 7-9 PM

2018—a year in which America feel like it’s on the brink of combustion—began for parts of Southern California under a cloud of smoke. The largest fire in modern California history raged in and around Santa Barbara throughout the early weeks of the year. The exhibition Incendiary Devices presents the work of nine artists with ties to the Santa Barbara region whose work explores literal and metaphorical combustibility.

An incendiary device is a bomb designed to start fires by releasing energy over a long period of time, rather than in a single explosive moment. Much like the works of art in this exhibition, an incendiary device is carefully fashioned, politically motivated, and activated by temporal engagement. 

This exhibition features work by:
Rose Briccetti
Cathy Ellis
Vanesa Gingold
Yumiko Glover
Lucy Holtsnider
Kayla Mattes
Tom Pazderka
Peter Sowinski
Echo Theohar
