PARKER BRANCH
No. 2: RED KRAYOLA PORTAL
FEBRUARY 2008

Project guest-curated by Craig Leonard that maps networks and lines of movement among members of the rock and roll underground.

Using Mayo Thompson's experimental rock outfit The Red Krayola, as a point of departure, Craig Leonard's RED KRAYOLA PORTAL, charts the complex networks and movements of individuals and bands in a 6' x 10' drawing and related research. The result functions as a subcultural map, a rhizomorphic index, that includes such far-flung groups as Big Black, The Anti Group and Throbbing Gristle. The exhibition also includes two exchange projects on the theme of music: Leonard's TIN SPEAKER<->1984 and a mixed-tape trade by Halifax's TASK FORCE (aka Selwyn Sharples).
