Eat Before We Eat You CAKE Art Show

The Chicago Alternative Comics Expo and Morpho Gallery present...EAT BEFORE WE EAT YOUor, The C.A.K.E. ShowCurated by Onsmith & NuddAlthough not strictly a comics show, The CAKE Show (subtitled "Eat Before We Eat You" - the toxic mantra of the legendary bottom-of-the-barrel weirdo schlock-fest Troll 2) will include one-offs and side projects by a multitude of local and national artists that work deep within the fleshy walls of the underground comics world or, at very least, in an underground comics vain. Traditional comics panels will be exhibited alongside a slew of visual out takes, false starts, b-sides and orphans: prints, paintings, drawings, sketches, sculptures, posters, zines, and other ephemera. Formally trained artists that operate inside the fine art and comics worlds will comprise the majority of the show, but work will also be included by several untrained self taught artists. The central themes of E.B.W.E.Y. are productivity, promiscuity, radioactivity, infidelity, and automatous artistic cannibalism. The result will be something of an artistic curiosity shop or odditorium, a peculiar curio cabinet of comics inspired graphic wonders and deformities. This show will coincide with the much anticipated first ever Chicago Alternative Comics Expo at Columbia College Chicago.Opening Reception: Saturday June 16, 6 - 8 PMExhibition & Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Saturday June 6 - 9, Wednesday - Sunday June 13 - 17, 11:30AM - 5:30PM208 S.
