Kim Beck's book "A Flock of Signs" is launching TONIGHT at Printed Matter. In addition to the book, she also installed arrow signs in the bookstore, which look great. There's blank signs, some have words, some are informational, some nonsensical. The installation looks great, and Printed Matter always has fun openings so go check it out!
RR&P: Repetition, Rhythm, and Pattern is opening TONIGHT at TSA Brooklyn. Mixed Greens boasts not only one, not only two, but a whopping three connections to the show! The show's curator, Lindsey Landfried, was a former intern at Mixed Greens, and included Kim Beck's work in the group show. Naomi Reis, the assistant director of TSA Brooklyn, will have a window installation up at Mixed Greens during the summer months. The show looks great, so make sure to go check it out!
Also happening next week is the Dallas Art Fair! All the work has shipped, and we are ready to go. This year we are bringing works of Alessandra Expósito, Howard Fonda, Brad Greenwood, and Mary Temple. We'll come back with more photos of the booth so stay tuned!
Special thanks to ODelle Abney for once again visiting our opening reception and posting a nice video of the scene to Youtube. You can enjoy this pleasant walk-through of the show, even if you missed visiting us last Thursday night. Enjoy!
There's been an abundance of press coverage for Kim Beck's The Sky Is the Limit, a skywriting project that happened this past Sunday, October 9th. We're sure you saw it if you were out enjoying the afternoon in NYC on Sunday. I personally watched as a few hundred shoppers in SoHo paused to look up at the sky. I saw about a hundred camera phones point toward the sky in unison to capture the words as they spelled out "Lost Our Lease", "Last Chance", and "Now Open". Read some press here:
