San Diego-based gallery space Subtext has been on a roll lately with some wonderfully themed and well thought out group shows. Their ‘Release the Kraken’ exhibit caught our eye a couple months back (seen here) and they’ve followed that one up with another excellent concept show, ‘Homeroom,’ which opens this Friday, November 11th. Guest curator Christina Conway has recruited a prestigious roster of artists to recreate their own childhood drawings in an insightful look at the long term evolution of their works, the idea of the child as artist, and a nice trip down memory lane to boot. Get a look at the original doodles and their contemporary counterparts below.
