*ESPO’s sign-painting fundraiser project occurred last year, but it’s that time of year again so please donate to support Creative Time anyway!

This week in Brooklyn: Weird World curated by Aimee Lusty at Booklyn Art Gallery.

Weird World is an exhibition of artists’ books, photography and drawings exploring anthropological portraiture through an artistic lens, with an emphasis on the unseen, the occult, the weird, the wild, and the subversive. These artists present rare observational studies of various subcultures, ranging from punks and teenage ravers, members of the Westboro Baptist Church, to minority tribes of the Yunnan Province in China. These portraits provide an intimate yet omnipresent view of these seemingly exclusive unapproachable communities in their “natural habitats.” Reporting through an artist’s eye offers more than photojournalism, allowing their creativity to guide their observations, incorporate digital manipulation, and present their findings in unique sculptural formats.
Coinciding with this exhibition we are hosting open-call for the exhibition zine. The artists in exhibition will curate a selection of photographs, drawings and text to be published in a full-color publication alongside their own artwork, to be released at a closing party for the exhibition. For information on the open call please visit here.

The show opens October 6th and closes November 18th.

Just Opened:”Undercover” Joy Curtis, Rebecca Goyette, Carin Riley, Molly Stevens, Trish TillmanSlag Contemporary, 56 Bogart St., Brooklyn, NYdrawing, painting, sculpture and performance - thru May 2Rebecca Goyette’s Bundling Bags call on participants to literally get under cover and hold hands. Trish Tillman combines home relics and furniture parts to construct private memorials and characters. They are present like furniture, but are non-functional, and as such, become unsettling talismans or companions. Carin Riley’s diagrammatic mural Revolution represents underlying forces mapped according to ancient laws of fate and positioning. Molly Stevens’s large-scale oil stick drawings put forward vigorous color, shape and line that communicate a direct, fully visual energy. Joy Curtis creates not-quite relics that are familiar at first, but then catch you by surprise. *Photo credits: David Riley, courtesy Slag Contemporary.
