AUTO BODY IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE
A SHOW CURATED BY AUTO BODY AT 6BASE
SATURDAY, MARCH 10TH, 2018. OPENING RECEPTION 5-8PM
Auto Body seeks to study the artist’s studio in an effort to better understand what it means to inhabit a creative work space in New York. With a focus on New York City and Long Island and exploring a wide range of spaces occupied by artists in the past and currently, Auto Body presents a selection of collected items that conceptually or physically represent the artist’s studio which they come from. Through the process of visiting studios and collecting physical materials from them, Auto Body examines how the studio shapes the practice of the artist.The interest in studying the studio as a typology comes at a time when Auto Body is looking ahead to the prospects of building a studio of their own for a residency program in Long Island.
You're invited to the opening reception for "Auto Body: ARTIST - IN - RESIDENCE", an exhibition featuring many of Auto Body's friends including Eric Orr, Diane Davis, Linda Cunningham, Jeanine Alfieri, Barbara Korman, Christy Speakman and Ezequiel Jimenez and yours truly!
This show features a collection of items, physical materials and artifacts from artists studios, as a way of studying what it means to have a creative space in New York.
While we're talking about studio's, I've just received word from Danny & Judy that the International Center for Photography will be selling the BxADP book in their bookstore.
But what's even more exciting is that they are going to have a BxADP book-signing and film screening event on Thursday April 12th from 6:30-8pm!
We all hope you will be there! (It's a free event, but you need to reserve tickets.) I’ll be there to sign books and try to complete the signing of my copy . We all sign each others books and it’s like trading baseball cards! Got it, got it, need it, need it. I’m still working on a full set.
