What could possibly go wrong? That’s what you have to ask yourself when you first encounter the inner-workings of a GMO lab through the eyes of Artist Fred Tieken.

The November 17 opening of No to GMO - The UNO Show at the Neutra Institute Museum of Silver Lake marks the debut of Tieken’s installation in Los Angeles.

Genetic modification opens the door to patenting of foods produced in the lab. If this continues, the world food supply ultimately will be owned by a handful of large corporations. Compounding the problem, genetically modified foods are now being grown on nearly half of the cropland in the U.S.

You are invited to  experience first-hand the macabre results of genetic modification with the first LA showing of Tieken’s No to GMO installation. Also included in this exhibition is The UNO Show, a collection of paintings that illustrates the artist’s wry vision of what will happen to animals as a result of GMO lab life. As an added bonus, Tieken is including a larger-than-life sculpture of UNO, America’s favorite, fantastical bird.Saturday Nov 21- SAT Dec 19 at The Neutra Instutute museum in Slver Lake
