After a short bout of pointing and snickering, I tried to view the works in a more mature way, hoping to understand their cultural significance in the context of Art (note the emphasis). Or maybe I just wanted to know why people were willing to spend 100-600k on these garish pictures. The gallery catalogue didn't help much: "Evoking painting as a series of experiences akin to the movie camera gliding through space, capturing action as it goes, Kelley has devised a spatial push-pull effect through the arrangement of large polychrome panel paintings and smaller framed canvases." Really? I smell BS. Take out a few words here and there, and they'll have vaguely described the entire history of painting. Or how about this: "the small framed paintings on canvas[...]operate like windows in the gallery walls, punctuating the spatial parameters set up by the larger panel paintings." Not exactly groundbreaking. My own intellectual shortcomings aside, I didn't get ANY of this from the show. What I did get was a pretentious gallery-sanctified carnival: clusters of bright colors and sensational images goading us to run around looking for the next freak in the show. And I enjoyed it for just that. It's lowbrow-as-highbrow entertainment; trying to read anything more into it is like having a degustation at McDonalds.
SharksRoar is sick, def check those guys out!
Average Girl melts faces! Saw these guys at Maxwell's in Hoboken and have been hooked ever since. My new favorite band.
this show was amazing! im weary of actors doing multiple rolls just because they can suck at it but Sibyl made each character completely different. besides a piano and a chair the set is completely bare and the characters are so interesting to watch. additional coolness factor... the actors are going to do a performance where they reverse their rolls AND it is only $1.22/tix. i think it is this saturday but check out the website http://www.ps122.org/performances/crime_or…. i know im going
This concert was in a charity bookstore. Rhett and Jill were a perfect pairing: she with her fresh, strong voice, friendly nature and well crafted songs, and he with his charming sense of humor, intelligence and full catalog of kick-ass songs with literary references. Who the hell else can tell us that a song takes its inspiration from Don Delillo's Underworld ("World Inside the World"), or takes its name from a Raymond Carver short story ("What We Talk About"), and still leave us thinking what a powerful force in rock n roll the man who wrote the song is? No one besides Rhett.
Awesome show. All three acts were terrific. Jason Anderson's energy was fun to watch. Blame The Patient's songs were fresh and they sounded terrific. They are young but they can play with anyone. SSLYBY were really tight and played for a good long while. All in all a great show and night.
No one in NY who can draw like this guy. During the exhibition he did a spontaneous wall drawing over the 30 day exhibition time. He stood in the gallery every day and drew this incredible work based on the politics of Cheney's war politics. The work was like a Renaissance master and then when it was finished deconstructed the drawing by painting it out with pixel shapes, draw from the book which influenced the work until the wall was returned to white- here is the video on his site: http://hugocrosthwaite.com/exhibitions/pie…
Awesome Show!!!! I saw it and it is hilarious, ridiculous, and wildly fun! Go see it!
no more fakegaze! average girl brings the noise and the lyrics to back it up, plus all three are super steamy. it's like townes van zandt, but with explosions!
AG is INCREDIBLE. I've been waiting to catch these guys again for months, ever since I happened upon their show at Maxwell's over the summer. They're the long lost children of Jay Farrar and Jeff Tweedy, the masters of the New York alt-country scene. And for the ladies out there, you will not be disappointed...all three of them are VERY easy on the eyes...
