This is an action packed week for all of the artists at NewMediator.org. There are a number of shows that some of our artists are in now and are going to open soon (even one opening today!).
Currently the NewMediator.org show is going on at Nighthawk Books until July 1st. You can still see works by Amanda Thackray, Sheree Rensel, James Post, Olivia Kaufman-Rovia, Jeffrey Augustine Songco, John Herman, and David LaMorte. Listen to the Audio Tour here.
Also currently on show is the Site Specific Art Show in East Islip, NY. Olivia Kaufman-Rovia is showing an installation piece and there is a closing reception on July 24th that I am definitely going to be attending myself.
Presents: 3 Months of Mail Art for Hyperallergic HQ Sheree Rensel and I both have a piece of mail art in this show!
"Co-curated by Kate Wadkins and Hrag Vartanian, Presents will draw on the 100+ mail art works that have been sent to Hyperallergic since our initial request for submissions to our Mail Art Bulletin in March 2011. The show will include everything from practical jokes to prayer/envelope flags. They represent a range of materials and subject matter all emphasizing the tangible communication from one individual to another.
Please join us for our opening party Friday, June 17 from 6pm to 9pm at Hyperallergic HQ. We will also have gallery hours during Northside Open Studios on Saturday and Sunday June 18 and 19 from 12 noon to 6pm.
Hyperallergic HQ is located at 181 N 11th Street, Suite 302, Brooklyn, NY 11211.”
Brain Health Initiative
I am also helping put together a show at the Riverview Arts Center in Phillipsberg, NJ about the brain. The show, curated by Frank May, will address through art what it means to be a healthy brain. This show is slated for mid August, but the title and the line up are still TBA.
This is an audio tour of the current New Mediator Art Show at Nighthawk Books. The show features the work of past New Mediator guests John Herman, Olivia Kaufman, James Post, Amanda Thackray, Jeffrey Songco, Sheree Rensel, and your host David LaMorte.
