CRASH THE PLANET: The First Ever CRASH Space Art Show


>>> SIGN UP HERE <<<

CRASH Space is hosting our first ever official art show: CRASH THE PLANET.

The show will be hosted at CRASH Space, all throughout the interior (and possibly exterior) of the space.

The theme of the show, CRASH THE PLANET, is a CRASH Space spin on hacker culture and media interpretations thereof.

Art pieces should incorporate the theme in some way, but extraordinary and outlandish interpretations of the theme (and of what exactly a “CRASH Space spin” means) are welcome… encouraged, even.

Entries Due: March 19, 2016
Show Opening: April 2, 2016

Immortalize yourself forever in the garden of CRASH Space

Remember that time Barb made that crazy face plant / pot head?


Well, On Saturday, Feb 20th, Barb and I are going to hold a workshop to help everybody else make their VERY OWN pot head out of their VERY OWN face.

And then we’re going to stick them in the CRASH Space garden, turning our wholesome garden into some kind of super creepy easter-island-esque mount rushmore of CRASHers.


Don’t miss out on your chance to be forever immortalized in the Garden of CRASH Space.

PS ticket purchase covers all the materials and tools you’ll need, so don’t sweat it.

PPS you don’t have to be a CRASH member to join in. Everybody’s welcome.

About The Artist


”A musician at heart, inventor born of curiosity, and innovator by necessity, I believe the world calls him the ‘Godfather of Controllerism’ for damned good reasons”. -John Tackett, Crowd Wire

Historically there are only a handful of artists who have pushed the limits both with their music and with the instruments of its creation.  What Bach was to the keyboard, what Hendrix was to the guitar, this is what Moldover is to the controller.  Disillusioned with “press play DJs”, fans from all walks are drawn to Moldover shows, eager to witness electronic music’s return to virtuosity, improvisation, and emotional authenticity.  Dig deeper into Moldover’s work and you’ll uncover a subversive cultural icon who has redefined physical media with his Instrument-Albums, revolutionized musical collaboration with his custom Jamboxes, and is inspiring an entire generation of forward thinking music-makers by openly sharing his methods and madness.
