“Blaque Lyte presents the new and glowing artwork by over thirty international emerging and established artists. Curated by Chicago-based artists Paul Nudd and Chris Kerr, the exhibition explores the visual properties and strange effects of the black light by presenting artwork specifically intended to be seen under ultra violet rays.”

Alongside “Blaque Lyte” is the Keith Herzik retrospective, titled “There Are Still Lofty Dreams, Meager Desires and Still Silliness.” Herzik’s work is just mindblowing, with over 350 pieces ranging from screenprinted posters, paintings, random doodles, scraps of notes, weird-ass awesome drawings, and so on… Here’s a snapshot I stole from his blog.
