At its heart, “Gently Fried” is about the rapidly changing face of Austin and the voices that are transformed by its growth. Los Outsiders aim to foster a dialogue within the city and its art scene, to both activate voices that are part of an essential conversation and start a creative cross pollination in the scene in Austin. The main themes explored in the exhibition are change, relationships, house/home and community.
