LIKELIKE

205 North Evaline St, 15224

6:00 PM-11:00 PM

LIKELIKE online is back with a brand new virtual exhibition of tiny games about isolation, existential dread, human touch and lack thereof.
All the works in the showcase are made for PICO-8, a “fantasy console” created by Lexaloffle Games (Joseph White). Like the consoles of the ‘80s, PICO-8 imposes harsh technical limitations in terms of resolution, colors and cartridge memory. An entire community of virtuoso developers, demoscenesters, and retro-remakers thrives in this hyper constrained environment.
The Online Museum of Multiplayer Art will be open as well. Bring your friends for some safe, socially distanced, fun.
Works by: Sean S. LeBlanc and Ian Martin /// Benjamin Soulé /// Remy Devaux /// mcccclean /// Josh Millard /// Various Creators from the PICO-8 demo scene
Friday, May 1st 7PM-11PM
>>> likelike.org <<<
Everything is playable from the browser.

Plasticoral Specimens :: Asia Ward
Plasticoral Specimens imagines a time in the near future where coral reefs are replaced with plastic artificial reefs constructed by humans. The bubble glass and oval frames reference a photo style used in the 20th century which contained altered family photos, sometimes of a diorama-like photo of a deceased child posed sleeping. In this exhibit, the collection of plasticoral specimens are posed like artifacts from an older past. They are memorials to something that died, then artificially remade, passing into artifacts of decorative novelty. In the year 2050, the audience viewing these specimens are two generations into the future.

    • From July-December WQED followed us around with a camera crew to create a documentary on the Pittsburgh Circus Culture and while we had a show in March where we planned to debut it - we had to, instead, have it simply debuted online. It's super amazing. We had a blast working with WQED! We are incredibly proud of this experience. (Rick Sebak even makes an appearance!!)

VaultArt Studio

5100 Penn Avenue, 15212

12:00 PM- 9:00 PM

It's an artificial substitute for the real thing, but it's good for your health.
"Sweet and Low" is an online duo-exhibition of 2D illustrations and paintings from Wendy Davis and Sarah Harris. While both artists utilize similar production strategies, they have achieved radically different bodies of work. Still, a commonality of hue, mark, and form emerges when fashion illustration and abstract expressionism are paired together. "Sweet and Low" also features a selection of vibrant works from all artists working at VaultArt Studio.
VaultArt Studio is a project of Achieva, which advocates for, empowers, and supports people with disabilities and their families throughout their lives.

Folkdances of a Nucleic Village
by ​DANA Movement Ensemble

"Folkdances of a nucleic village" is a collaborative effort of the DANA Movement Ensemble creative team led by Founder/artistic director Nick M.Daniels. This multi-media/multi-disciplinary dance theater performance art piece takes us on a journey into a post nucleic city and confronts the socio-political-economic climate of that time. By combining site-specific imagery, live streaming video, dance, and theater this emotionally charged work truly confronts relevant and current events and issues and lends itself for discussion of these issues.
