Steve Kilbey - Art, Man + Technology Exhibition

From April 1 to June 1, 2009, Steve had an exibition at the 15 Minutes Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA. Labeled "A Total Immersion Experience," the exhibition consisted of 19 original paintings (one a diptych), to be viewed while listening to an accompanying 19-track CD of Steve's music and spoken word narration. The CD and 5" x 7" prints of the artwork were later sold as a box set (see below).

Steve mentioned this exhibit and the box set below in his blog on April 1, 2009 (Advertisement):

please go to my art site
you can click on it there on the right
you can see the paintings for my new exhi
in pittsburgh pa starting real soon
still havent multi media thingies finished
but its all coming down the line soon too
if you like my blog style
then you'll like my little discourses on my subjects
you see i am the total package
taking care of all your artistic needs
a one stop shop for all things renaissance
i'm blowing my own horn again
for who else will?
here i am a whirlwind of activity
spinning out stuff constantly
voice from another room : most of your stuffs quite good...
i am there in the frontline
nailing the paintings n songs n blogges that only i can
and i nail it and i nail it and i nail it
i have enough fire for ten other medi-ochre poets
but lawd, dont i love to go on about myself
i'm shocked not to be discovered
