God Hates Robots is probably Salt Lake’s most overlooked art gallery. Part of that is on purpose—the gallery door is tucked in around the corner from Carlucci’s Bakery and up two flights of stairs.
But if you’re intrigued by contemporary art in all it’s weirdness, but haven’t got time for its annoying pretentiousness—God Hates Robots is worth seeking out.
We especially like the philosophy behind God Hates Robots: Seeking “exposure for emerging artists and new bodies of work.” And the gallery encourages fledgling art patrons by putting a $400 cap on prices (which are often far less). And the artists get 80 percent of the sale price.
The May exhibition is Aaronic Configuration by G.S. Larson.
“Relying on hundreds of photos he captured of the models, Larson transfers their forms on to colorfully textured backdrops. Hints of emotion, bits of back story and details about the interactions held between the artist and his models come through in this narrative approach to depicting the male figure.”
