ANTHROPOMORPHIZER !! & Who is Pulling the Strings?

The Contemporary Arts Center presents “ANTHROPOMORPHIZER !!” an exhibition by Miss Pussycat, and “Who is Pulling the Strings?”, an exhibition by The Mudlark Puppeteers, Scary Toesies, Calliope Puppets, and The Red String Wayang Theater. The opening reception for both exhibitions is Tuesday, July 2, 6-8 pm, and will feature DJ sets by Quintron and Rotten Milk.

For “ANTHROPOMORPHIZER !!” Miss Pussycat will bring her sewing machine, buckets of neoprene, pipe cleaners, and fun fur to set up a working studio on display as she turns raw materials into puppets with special powers that fill the window and talk to viewers. This exhibition will remain on view until September 22. For more information on “ANTHROPOMORPHIZER !!”, click here. Miss Pussycat was one of THE DROP's September artists.

“Who is Pulling the Strings?” features four puppet companies that are exploring and developing contemporary puppetry in the South: Calliope Puppets, Mudlark Puppeteers, Scary Toesies, and Red String Wayang Theatre. The works in this exhibition highlight the narrative power of puppetry and the unique relationship between puppet and puppetmaker. This exhibition will remain on view until September 22.
