Opening Reception, September 1st, 2011 7 – 10 pm with a reading by Mathew Abess at 7 pm
Behind the curtain, a lock of hair falling is a line from a poem written by Mathew Abess, expert chef of Ostrich Eggs, the line is a compression of a scene (described some years after its occurrence) wherein the fuhrer emerges from a private suite in the public light of the hotel balcony, presenting himself to the crowds below.
The works of Joshua Abelow, Sarah Conaway, Talia Chetrit, Debo Eilers, Nicolas Lobo, Martin Oppel, and George Woodman come together to form an atmospheric fog of delusional pop, figurative indulgence and playfulness bordering on pornography. The artists in the exhibition live in Miami, New York City, and Los Angeles, creating a triangular network, this triangle is reflected physically in various works in the show.
Neon colors, hard cold lines, and filtered light are threads.
Pee Wee’s playhouse is a note.
The exhibition opens on September 1st, trailing the end of the radiating summer heat in Miami.
