I’m very excited to be part of a great line-up of photographers in 17 Frost Gallery’s upcoming group photography show, The Brooklyn (organized by Jim Kiernan and Aakash Nihalani). Join us for the opening on Friday, April 5th from 7-10pm.
The Brooklyn: Brooklyn Street Photography 17 Frost Gallery
17 Frost Street (between Union & Lorimer), Williamsburg
The gallery at 17 Frost Street is a large space for one person to fill, but Cassius Fouler gets it done with a slew of big, new canvases featuring his signature caricatures rife with graffiti symbolism. From caps to cans, from rollers to mops, from blunts to 40s, from yellow cabs to red birds, all the hallmarks of the NYC graffiti lifestyle are present and accounted for. Stop by the closing on Friday and see for yourself.

Burke and Muraghu’s collaborations are vivid representation of the American landscape. The show’s title, This Land is My Land, taken from Woody Guthrie’s landmark song, embodies the artists’ intent behind both the work and their own lifestyle. Guthrie describes the disenfranchised American staking a hypothetical claim to the landscape, reiterating native American concepts of land ownership. Their work, inspired by the New York City graffiti movement and the Hudson River school, not only attempts to document the American experience, but lays claim, even if only for a moment, to enlivening our relationship to the landscape through abstraction.
