Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland Opens assume vivid astro focus : ilegítimo

The Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland opens assume vivid astro focus : ilegítimo. On view September 10th, 2010 through January 9th, 2011.

The artist collective known as assume vivid astro focus (avaf) creates vibrant, visually intense collage-based environments, fusing elements of psychedelia, glam, kitsch and popular culture.

A mix of abstract and figurative forms, avaf’s sensorial murals and environments consist of fluid, brightly-colored overlapping shapes and images that stimulate a sensation of immediacy and immersion.

The work represents iconic characters, fictive narratives, and personal symbols while drawing on historical, social, and political issues in a charged commentary on the complexity and pace of life in the 21st century.

This exhibition will feature a high voltage site-specific mural installation wrapping approximately 100 linear feet of wall space in what will become a distinctive environment for special programs.
