Devin Flynn: SuperStupid
September 26 - October 31, 2009
Opening Reception: Saturday, September 26, 7-10pm
After building a strong foundation in DIY art and music-making while living in Providence, R.I. during the Fort Thunder-era, Devin Flynn then moved to Brooklyn, NY where these ethics were challenged by the reality of economics. He created his own market by doing animated music videos for friends in up and coming bands like Providence's own Lightning Bolt, which got the attention of many like-minded individuals, and also resulted in various opportunities. These included a regular spot on MTV's Wondershowzen, a video in the Liverpool Biennial, curating a video program for The Anthology Film Archives and Deitch Projects respectively, animating the title sequence for Adult Swim's AquaTeen Hunger Force Movie, making an educational animation about hearing for an elementary school, and culminating all of these experiences in a stream of consciousness webseries on Adultswim.com called Y'all So Stupid. The exhibition will consist of the last 10 years of Flynn's animation output as well as a selection of drawings.In addition to the gallery exhibit, a special screening of Devin's animation will be held at the Alamo Drafthouse Downtown in Austin, Texas on Monday, September 28th at 10pm.
