These works, originally conceived as the accompaniment to an opera, represent a "near-perfect summation" of the unique partnership of artists Vitaly Komar and Alexander Melamid, according to Simon Zalkind, director of the Singer Gallery in the Mizel Center for Arts and Culture. Zalkind views Melamid and Komar's work as being "characterized by iconoclastic wit and gleeful fearlessness in subverting the pomposities of ideologues everywhere." An opening reception for American Dreams takes place this afternoon from 3 to 5 p.m., followed by a lecture by Komar; admission is free. The exhibit runs through November 11 at the Singer, 250 South Dahlia Street. Call 303-316-6360 or visit www.mizelcenter.org or www.komarandmelamid.org for more information.
