Here is info from the gallery: 

“Several special details make this exhibition extraordinary. Marking The Pit’s 7th anniversary, this is show number one hundred! Calculator says that’s 14.82 shows per year, which is a fuckload of shows. The Pit works hard… real hard. While quantity doesn’t precede quality, this impressive data unapologetically implies rad citizenship; phenomenal determination; audacious collaboration; business acumen; and a very solid good taste / good vibes combo.

Wild Frontiers also marks a return to non-socially distanced events, as we continue processing what we’ve missed and lost, to refamiliarize ourselves with being together. Wild Frontiers is an anti-conquest, salon-style passion play that collects works from over twenty-five artists in favor of encouraging happy collisions, enigmatic conversations, and freaky coincidences. Bright color, ecstatic weirdness, Maximalism, and visionary high times pulsate from every aesthetic zone like distant stars across the universe that individually sparkle to transmit exceptional compatibility. Decadence has entered the building; Wild Frontiers is a cornucopia of flamboyant abstraction and sybaritic figurative drama that subliminally imagines physical contact. This exhibition furthers The Pit’s tradition of curating to encourage new connections, alliances, and avenues between artists who should definitely know each other. Is it time for revelry yet? Not sure, but shout-outs for Pleasure as we remember, reintroduce, and reenter are certainly called for. “ – Trinie Dalton
