Recently there have been plenty of haters making things difficult for artists and art lovers in the city of #Welland. Used to be that if you didn't like someone or something that it was as easy as walking away. Unfortunately we no longer have that capability to make peace through ignorance, due to technology. The Black Lantern Experience has been quietly criticized by establishment artists, politicians, and bureaucrats. This criticism isn't unwarranted, since the Black Lantern Experience has been a hotbed of anti-establishment art and discussion, due to the fact that the establishment is no longer participating with a large part of the community.
Time to read between the lines, if you or an organization that you work for takes a shot at #BLX then the Black Lantern Experience will respond. The last group art show, Hostile Takeover, proved that the Black Lantern Experience is as organized as any other arts group in the city. The upcoming show will take on some new ideas about destruction, construction, and the function of art in a damaged community.
