Join us for a live chip-tunes (Nintendo, Atarti, Commodore) performance by Nullsleep and Minusbaby, free admission, Saturday Nov. 13, 9 pm.

The opening reception will take place on Saturday, November 13th 2004, 7pm - 10pm.
The exhibition will be on display until Sunday, December 5th 2004.

Maria Adelaida Lopez and Ernesto Restrepo are Miami based Colombian mixed-media artists. They have exhibited extensively in the USA: White Box (NY), Benedicta Art Center (MN), Tyler Gallery (PA)
and in Colombia: Galeria Oficina (Medellin), Valenzuela y Klenner Gallery, (Bogota), Museum of Modern Art (Bogota) and many others.

"The Mus Musculus DomesticusProject, chapter one" is a politically loaded social commentary, metaphor and a micro-urban experiment. Forty live, female house mice are trapped in a miniature city constructed by the artists in their apartment and transported in units to the gallery. The self-contained microcosm is equipped with surveillance cameras which reveal the private life of its inhabitants.

VertexList gallery hours are Friday, Saturday, Sunday 2pm -7pm, or by appointment.
