Girl Crush

When: Aug. 5-31 2016

It's easy to think of human bodies as beautiful and elegant in abstraction. But then there's the reality of being made of meat and fluids, and all the disgusting things that bodies do as a result. That sense of revulsion you no doubt just felt has captivated artists Amber Cobb and Laura Shill. It heavily informs the work that went into Girl Crush, their current exhibit at GOCA 121. In addition to a swath of tasteful hanging works, they've built a deeply unsettling installation that feels like David Lynch's Eraserhead colored with pink candy and organ meat. It's decorated with the neon sign that serves as the show's logo, further solidifying the scene's unsettling and fascinating vibe. This exhibit is not to be missed. 121 S. Tejon St., Suite 100, 255-3504, free, uccs.edu/goca — Griffin Swartzell
