Failed Attempts at Space Travel is a group exhibition featuring the work of six artists. Each of the individuals involved uses a unique mode of expression - photography, painting, drawing, needle-work, yarn installation, and silkscreening are all equally represented. This eclectic assembly of mediums may seem unrelated at first glance, but the pieces are in fact organically symbiotic. The relation that bonds the artwork is the shared subcultural roots of its creators. These artists cultivated their creativity in the 1980s and 90s punk rock movement. Having learned the vital importance of self-expression at a young age, they continue to use their artwork (much as they previously had done with music) as vehicle for progressive social change and spiritual exploration.
