The WaterFire Arts Center store + gallery continues to showcase Rhode Island-based artists in our spaces and we are pleased to announce our newest installation, “Welcome to the Anti-Robot Club” by Spocka Summa, on exhibit in the WFAC gallery from October 29 through November 28, 2021. A public opening is scheduled for Friday, October 29, 2021, from 6-9 pm. All of the artwork on display serves as a metaphor of our current reality. Exploring the idea that we live amongst a system that constantly takes without giving back much of anything.
Spocka Summa is an emerging artist based out of Providence, RI. Through his artwork and collaborations with other artists he has developed a unique way of storytelling. In this installation, “Welcome to the Anti-Robot Club”, Spocka explores the idea of a world in the not too distant future in which technology has taken over and mankind is on the verge of extinction. Join the battle as he combines forces with the Anti-Robot Club (@anti_robotclub) in a final attempt to recruit worthy members to save mankind. Don’t get lost inside the system….
“I want all visitors to remember to take a moment to enjoy life. Allow yourself to be present and active in your day to day activities. Enjoy the company of friends and family in your environment.”
