Opening Show February 6th 5pm

at SubRosa
703 Pacific Avenue, Santa Cruz

Kyle McKinley’s art and activism are focused on community-based appropriate technologies. For the past five years that has taken the form of working in organizations that teach people to maintain their bicycles.

Kyle completed a double major in Sculpture and World Literature at UC Santa Cruz. At that time his artworks were installations that offered embodied equivalents to Post-Structuralist theory.

More recently Kyle’s has made ‘zines that appropriate the idioms of early twentieth century children’s literature to form social commentary. These publications, the art-objects that accompany them, and any future works are rooted in radical collaboration.

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
