For Immediate Release:
Skylab Gallery is proud to present new work from Columbus based
visual, performance and sound artist Dan Olsen!
Opening on Saturday November 14th and running through the 30th, the
new show is entitled “New Age Dang Brains / Slow Hall Slow Oats /
Bummer Healing” and includes 30+ drawings, videos, sounds and
installation. Olsen’s work is complex, psychedelic and seems to come
directly from his melding stream of consciousness. This show deals
with “shallowness, purposelessness, meaninglessness and spiritual
depletion” and will run the gamut of Olsen’s work. The opening
includes a live performance.
Olsen has exhibited work at Chop Chop Gallery in Columbus, the Toledo
Art Museum, Artscape Festival in Baltimore, ROY G BIV Gallery in
Columbus, Skylab and the Shelf in Columbus, and Van Gallery in
Columbus. His short film, “Homeslice”, was selected in the 2007 San
Francisco Short Film Festival, 2007 Wexner Short Film Showcase, and
published in the Journal of Short Film VOL. 12.
