National Academy Review Panel Discussion

The National Academy of Arts and Letters had a roundtable discussion on seven shows in NYC, and my show at Steven Harvey Fine Art was one of them.  The discussion was friday, March 7.  


I didn't attend, but I listened to the podcast.  It was a very interesting discussion between Barry Schwabsky, Nora Griffin, Drew Lowenstein and Moderator David Cohen.  Barry Schwabsky evidently hated the show so much he has decided that he no longer likes David Bowie because I listen to him, which I thought was pretty great.  It was an excellent, thoughtful analysis of all six shows by all the panelists, and I am hoping to someday attend one of these discussions in person at the National Academy.
The podcast of the event is available for free at this link:

2 shows: Welcome to the Afterfuture at Steven Harvey Fine Art and Sump Pumped Sentiments at TSA -NYC and Brooklyn, NY

I have a (solo) show opening February 12 at Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects at 208 Forsyth Street (Lower East Side) in NYC.  The opening reception is Saturday February 15th, from 4-6, and the show runs until March 16th.  The show title (Welcome to the Afterfuture) is a reference to Mike Ladd's masterpiece of the same name.  If you haven't listened to this record I recommend it.  I will be doing a talk in the gallery on February 20th at 6:00 pm.

On February 21 Sump Pumped Sentiments will open at TSA (Tiger Strikes Asteroid Gallery) in Brooklyn, NY.  Sump Pumped Sentiments is a group show curated by Matt Phillips, organized around the Potato Eaters painting by Vincent Van Gogh.  Other artists in the show are Todd Bienvenu, Shara Hughes and Jason Mones.  The opening is February 21 from 6-8 at TSA, 44 Stewart Avenue, #49 Brooklyn, NY.
