Futurist Lucite Plains art exhibit features work of three professors

Lucite Plains is a new performance collaboration between Kansas City-based artists and UMKC professors Ricky Allman and Barry Anderson. Combing elements of Allman’s paintings and installations with Anderson’s work in video and animation, and adding music composed for analog synthesizers and guitars, the performances create a psychedelic futurist experience. The concept came from a melding of themes they have been working on individually for the past few years including eco-futurism, geological ritualism, ancient mythology and retro utopian visions.

For their first extended performance residency, they will be presenting a series of seven events October 19-21 at SubTropolis as part of Open Spaces where they will be joined by guest musician, artist, and fellow UMKC colleague Davin Watne.
