upcoming exhibits


I’m in two shows that open this Friday night as party of Greenpoint Gallery night. It should be a great night in Brooklyn!


Calico presents its first juried group exhibition:
“#throwbackthursday / #flashbackfriday”
September 13 – October 4, 2013
opening reception: Sept 13, 6-9pm
jurors: Scott Chasse, founder/director of Calico Brooklyn
and Hrag Vartanian, editor-in-chief & co-founder of hyperallergic
this opening coincides with Greenpoint Gallery Night

With “#throwbackthursday / #flashbackfriday”, Calico asked artists to consider these questions: As artists, are we as willing to share images from our potentially cringeworthy artistic pasts? Could the older work be a “younger, hotter” version of its modern counterpart? Perhaps there is an outright cohesiveness in one’s work that has withstood the test of time..?

After sorting through over sixty submissions, a group of artists were chosen based on the interesting relationship of old work vs. new work. The exhibit will feature both old and new, and invites the viewer to search for similarities, differences, trends, and departures.

Exhibiting artists include: Adams Puryear, Charles Wilkin, Eric Lee Bowman, Lauren Silberman, Marcia Cooper, Mark Mann, Rachel Farmer, Samuel Baumel, Stacie Johnson, and Thomas Buildmore


Superstitious 13

Ancient Egyptian New Year’s Hot Rave

…it was called something like that. It was basically a super hot and sweaty fun birthday dance party at the Center for the Advancement of Contemporary Art, which is the home to to a few friends’ art studios, located in Williamsburg.  Talibam! played in Maya Hayuk’s studio space (those are her rad paintings in the background) – they were weird and awesome. Here’s a photo:

Cuchifrita’s Curls

Shot for Bombshell Bakers this weekend, a book project I’ve been working on with friend Dakota Kim for the past several months.  We worked with two lovely burlesque dancers, one pictured below in an out take from the shoot. Dame Cuchifrita did her hair in giant coke can curlers and we shot her on the streets of Bed-Stuy – she was all kinds of fabulous! Be on the lookout for this totally sweet and sexy cookbook that should be published later this year.
