It’s an art show! It’s a party! It’s FREE!! VIDLINGS & TAPEHEADS is a mixed-media group show celebrating the twenty-year creative legacy of an eclectic group of ’90s DIY Michigan teens and twentysomethings and their Public Access TV show “30 MINUTES OF MADNESS.” 30MOM premiered on March 5th, 1992 and is a bizarre video mixtape of improv and written skits, non-sequitor vérité samples, and experimental video art. 30MOM embraces the 90s DIY grunge/punk counter-culture, unpolished and sincere. This retrospective is a gathering place for all fans and creators of independently-produced DIY video, installation art, zines, drawings, and ephemera. For more on the 30MOM crew, check out the feature documentary 20 YEARS OF MADNESS and their website 30MOM.COM.
