The idea of putting together a unique pop-up visual arts showcase in a local music venue has been on my mind for a long time. My concept for CMYK was born out of heading out to constantly experience pop-up musical performances from bands at art galleries for so many years. The notion that pop-up shows of this kind should be confined to galleries got me to thinking: why not transform the spaces we’re used to seeing as music venues into pop-up art galleries themselves?
Giving a more equal footing to the music and the visual art in a traditionally music-oriented space, the first CMYK will give people a chance to see the space at Hi-Tone transformed into a new experience. With the help of Memphis-based visual arts mastermind Kyle Taylor and live performances by Pepper Rabbit, an exclusive 3-D visual performance from Charlie Blacksmoke, up-and-coming hip-hop toaster Royal’T and emerging songwriter Cheyenne Marrs & Sudden Organs, hand-selected works by Chris Parks from Pale Horse Graphic Design and Gallery and a series of classic Flaming Lips concert posters from Wayne Coyne, this night is guaranteed to be an enticing (if occasionally psychedelic) sensory overload of eye and ear candy.
