Barcelona-born Quim Tarrida draws from a steadfast refusal to "mature" as an avenue to explore the hidden meaning of popular culture. His vinyl toys offer critical response to the seductive quality of mass media, sharing the dark side of even the most innocuous object. Through sculpture and drawing, Tarrida forms a rich body of work with a single connection — utilizing the tools of the enemy in his own version of neo-pop art.

If You Blink, You'll Miss It runs to December 30, 2011.
