Uncanny Valley: Lightning Bolt / Black Pus / Brian Chippendale / ...




Thu 03 'til Sat 05 May

An open marriage between underground music and visual art

Uncanny Valley 2018

Central guests for this edition are Lightning Bolt; the avant-punk duo of Brian Chippendale and Brian Gibson who have been expanding and blowing people's minds since early 2000. Next to their music they both also work as multimedia and graphic artists; Gibson is a well regarded game developer and Chippendale has put out a large collection of celebrated graphic novels.

Both their music and their visual work is challenging, yet fun and displays an endless high energy. From their early days, building a community in the independent Providence warehouse scene through endless touring and playing sweaty punk clubs their music and art has been an inspiration for many likeminded freaks.

During Uncanny Valley there will be ​exclusive shows of both Lightning Bolt and Brian Chippendale's solo project Black Pus. We also invited a string of artists and organizations who embrace the same manic energy, DIY attitude and abrasive weirdness. Kindred spirits to their noisy sound and ditto attitude.

Next to that there's an exhibition of Chippendale's graphic work and a panel talk with Lightning Bolt and several other guests. On the last day we also invite several labels and artists for a small zine & record fair.
