Named after the song by R.E.M., Carnival of Sorts is a collective group of undergraduate students at the Lamar Dodd School of Art who formed with the intent of “making opportunity happen rather than waiting for it.” Following its debut show at the 40 Watt last December, the group’s second one-night-only pop-up exhibition, “Life on Mars,” will feature contributions by 19 juniors and seniors working in varying disciplines not limited to drawings, paintings, textiles and mixed media. Thinking outside of the “white cube” box, the group aims to carve out alternative spaces for experiencing art, and takes a self-curatorial approach to reflect the members’ wide range of styles, themes and narratives.
