Curated by Phong Bui and the Rail Curatorial Projects this exhibition features a selection of artists, born between the 1920s and 1980s, who have common interests in psychedelic experience, disordered time perception, consensus trance induction, turn on-tune in-drop out, temporal illusion, altered state of awareness, and novelty theory. Utilizing the psychedelic as a viable space of artistic creation—heightened uses of color, exuberant patterns, distorted forms, fantastical imagery in repetition or chaos, and a highly idiosyncratic visual language—the works seek to challenge our perception.
