Blind Carbon Copy

June 10, 2009

Jon and Andrew’s new show in NYC features some amazing artists and artworks. From the press release:

Common Space presents a 5 day group exhibition with artists Andrew Kuo,Sebastian Kim, Jon Santos, Milano Chow, Deanne Cheuk, Saiman Chow,Masayo Kishi, Yuh-Shioh Wong, and Confetti System.

Location: 179 Canal Street, 2nd FloorHours: Noon- 6pm“Blind Carbon Copy” is a sly appropriation of a day’s corporate drama. Narrativeaction item: Global media conglomerate headquartered in New York Citycommissions program bringing to the table ethnic diversity. Visionary programshall jam the culture inbox, host panel discussions, culminate with cutting edgeart exhibition in midtown corporate lobby. Month of June: the Asians. Globalconglomerate enlists core competency to brain dump Asian American artists tohang their art in beige hallways of media triumphalism. Eleventh and a half hourdivision head issues the disintermediate: Shut it down.

At the end of the day refers to what happened during the day – what got dealt,what got salvaged, what got tossed out. At the end of the day, “Blind CarbonCopy” re- shuffles the deck to communicate an elliptical difference, even as thatdifference opposes clear definable equalities. The featured works vary fromfashion photography to drawing, sculpture, graphic art and video. Much of theseartists works deploy a detachment of assimilative meaning. Genres of ethnicity, commercial, fine art start to slope from fulfillment ofdistinction to interrelations, intricacies and contradictions of meaning, a ghostwithout a host gliding past various check points of identity.

Exhibition hosted by Margaret Lee.
Organized by Common Space.

The invitation for his closing party is one of the best I’ve ever seen. I think it’s great that he had an opening and a closing.

Great Moments in HUGS

December 17, 2008

HUGS is Andrew and Josh’s weekly dance party/drink night at LIT on 2nd Avenue. I haven’t gone in years, but they’re still going strong and they have the best flyers ever. Thought I’d share a few of their recent hits.
