I’m excited to be returning to NYC this month as part of the 60 Americans group show, which opens this Thursday May 21 at Elga Wimmer PPC in Manhattan (526 West 26th Street #310 in Chelsea). As the title suggests, the show features 60 artists handpicked by co-curators Terrence Sanders, Noah Becker and Alexander Venet, and runs from May 21-June 14th. If you’re in town, the opening is from 6-9pm, with a special performance by Hayoon Jay Lee at 7:30pm, so please stop on by and say hello. You can also preview the show online.
About the show:
’60 Americans’ is a response to the ill-gotten gains of flipper based collectors, money corrupted and trend obsessed gallerists, shopping mall (puppy mill/factory) inspired art fairs, nepotism and favoritism of the made men and women of fast track MFA programs in America. This exhibition will offer an alternative perspective on what’s arguably relevant and important in the current landscape of American contemporary art.
bait is a cut paper collage on paper, using images primarily pulled from vintage magazines and other ephemera and dry adhered to paper using a gel medium. The original is 20″ x 15.5″ and was completed May 2015
Here’s the fourth and final collage (above) I put together for electro-pop duo Young Wonder – it’s for Sweet Dreaming, the third single from their album Birth. For comparison, below is the original version that I sent over to them, before the background color was changed on their end. The album drops on May 18th – be sure to pick it up.
Excited to announce that Young Wonder’s brand new full lengthalbum, Birth, will finally be dropping on May 18th – above is the collage that I created for the cover. Also, you can pre-order the limited edition vinyl version here – grab one before they’re gone. And check out the album teaser below.
