We’ve been working with Kevin Titzer now for close to five years and during this time he’s been cooking up the idea for a show that would honor his favorite band the PIXIES. While working together on his recent solo show, the notion came up that we would help him find a good home for this show… enter our friends Patrick and Tanya at the C.A.V.E. Gallery in Venice, CA on the hip Abbot Kinney Blvd. Together we’ll be presenting Kevin’s dream show. ‘Dig For Fire’ will feature 34 artists interpretations of songs from the PIXIES amazing catalog. This special exhibition is being presented with full support from the band and their management.
‘Dig For Fire’
Art Inspired by the PIXIES
Curated by Kevin Titzer
