Your scalp itches when thinking about head lice. Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven invented the readymade. More time separates Tyrannosaurus rex from Stegosaurus than T. rex from puppies today. Nintendo was founded. Bananas are berries. Sharks predate Christmas trees. Anne Frank, Martin Luther King Jr., and Barbara Walters were all born in the same year.

“Nice Fight” was the name of an exhibition by Spencer, K. Allyn and 13 art students in Miami, Florida, March 2021.
Artist and educator Keith Allyn Spencer and FIU Intermediate and Advanced Sculpture students collaborated on a new body of artwork titled “Nice Fight”. From a series of distanced exchanges, and with consideration to the MBUS exhibition space, Spencer created thirteen paintings to be combined onto a set of student realized sculptures, or “wall things”. The result is a temporary and playful marriage of image and form, structure and surface, promoting curiosities about authorship, chance, interpretation, and the conventions of display. Participants include: Marie Lucie Craan, Imani Fagan, Abril Llerena, Douglas Lora, Fernando Marquez, Alexis Mckinnon, Monia Meluzzi, Marco Ordonez Dominguez, Alondra Samayoa, James Stueck, Sophia Villanueva, Imani Dean and Kaitlin Jackson.
