“Look at it! It's a once in a lifetime opportunity, man! Let me go out there and let me get one wave, just one wave before you take me in.” – Bodhi

The work in this exhibition broadly addresses the vernacular, aesthetic, and sentiment of summer and "the beach", as well as the ritual of seasonal theme parties. Look out for sharks, tiki-bar concoctions, Jell-O, keg beer and a number of other summer clichés, just in time for fall.
