Ann Catherine Carter is taking over curatorial duties at the Packing Plant next month, and for her first show she and co-curator Harrison Luna are bringing artist Nathan Sulfaro, a 22-year-old University of Tennessee undergrad, to the Wedgewood-Houston exhibition space. The exhibit opens July 5 as part of the first Saturday art crawl.

The exhibit, titled GMOMG, will feature drawings as well as the above photograph of a car covered in sliced bread. Art is so weird.

From the press release:

For the drawings, Nathan fictionally waited for Kobe Bryant to meet up with him in a 24-hour Starbucks for 24 hours and documented every hour of his psychological and physical state.

In "BreadMobile/Starbucks Approved Gluten Mystification," he uses the symbol of the car and bread to show how vehicles and food can reflect the obsessions and the absurdity in consumer culture, as well as bringing together the iconic with the mundane and giving them equal weight.

That being said, Nathan’s work embraces the audiences role in bringing meaning where the images or objects may have little relation to one another.
