Tomorrow, December 11, is the opening of , aka the O Show ("an homage to all that is round, curvy, and looped"), a group exhibit I'm in. It's at SICA, on the Jersey shore, and is curated by the New York curatorial combine MatCh-Art. A web page about the show, with images of the artists' work, is here, and the press release, in .PDF form, is here. The work I'm showing is the DVD of this animated GIF (still is second from top above). Other artists include Lisa Beck, Louis Cameron, Moriah Carlson, Orly Cogan, Mark Dagley, Joel Edwards, Rob Grunder, Francis Holstrom, Sharon Horvath, Jim Houser, Jasper Johns, Chris Kasper, Laura Ledbetter, Jim Lee (top image, above), Monique Luchetti, Noah Lyon, Andrew Masullo, Rob Matthews, Derick Melander, Matthew Northridge, John Phillips, James Rosenthal (third from top, above), Savako, Randall Sellers, Mark Shetabi, Jordan Tinker, John Torreano, Alice Wu (fourth from top, above), B. Wurtz, and Nami Yamamoto. Unfortunately I'm w*rking and will miss the opening, but hopefully will make the reception at Ramopo College, the next venue the show's traveling to.
Is that 'Bible Belt' one made out of soap?
Cast resin--but resembling the soap carvings from vacation bible school (I think I actually went to something called that as a kid).
"Vacation Bible School" - that was my most hated cumpulsory childhood activity... just the name is such an oxymoron. Going to VBS seemed worse than going to school, wasting part of the summer at going to church EVERY DAY instead of just on sunday (which was bad enough)
I was too young and trusting to hate it. Now, Boy Scouts, on the other hand...
What a revelation!
sounds like a Henry Darger plot.
And we all so distressed when At Cedernine, Jennie was Wounded and Brought Between 3 Firing Lines!
You know, I never thought of my summer camp as being like "Vacation Bible Camp", but it was Catholic, and there was some mass involved (although I think I ditched).
