Very exciting news:
This Friday night two new shows open at Mercer:
KENNETH GOLDSMITH, STREET POETS & VISIONARIES: SELECTIONS FROM THE UBUWEB COLLECTION - an exhibition of posters and ephemeral writings from the streets of New York City.
And CRAIG LEONARD: AMUSICOLOGY - A series of mini-installations, charting art/rock coincidences and convergences through mixed dosages of sculptural inquiry, archival impulse and audio experiment.
I am so looking forward to these shows, which run from January 09, 2009 - February 14, 2009. But even though the show will be up for a month, you should definitely try to make the opening because there will be a talk by UbuWeb founder Kenneth Goldsmith at 7PM preceding the opening reception at 8PM.
Just in case you haven't already heard of UbuWeb, it is a truly amazing on-line resource/treasure that you should check out immediately here.
And there is a pretty great interview with Goldsmith here.
(I so badly wish I could take his Un-Creative Writing class, where students are penalized for showing any signs of creativity or originality.)
