“The Spiritual Grunge” exhibition is a group show where 11 diverse artists express our current state of apathy, comment on the “whatever” generation, and explores how artists, be visual, musical or performing find their creative “spirit” in a world riddled with ugly obstacles. The tragic grunge god, Kurt Cobain, served as visual iconography and metaphorical inspiration for this exhibition.

Grunge ethics:
-Take as little effort as possible on appearance and dress for comport and affordability.
-Reject the idea that one must always purchase the things that one wants or needs from others.
-Lyrics are typically angst-filled, angry, frustrated, sad, fearsome, and depressed.
-Never follow trends.
