Contemporary Art: It's about dudes at God Hates Robots.

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.

Here’s Larson’s description of the show:
“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.”
Aaronic Configurations opens May 19 (reception 6 p.m.) and runs through June 9.

The late, great Glen Warchol passed away in 2018. His last billet was on the editorial staff here at Salt Lake magazine but his storied career included stops at The Salt Lake Tribune, The Desert News, The New Times and others. His stories haunt this website like ghosts in a machine and we're always happy to see them. RIP Papa Warchol.
