The show to see, hear and marvel. On exhibition until October 7, 2012. "Colliding Complexities" @ storefrontbushwick. Artist Disney Nasa Borg =[dnasab] embodies this wild claim, but he throws it down and scores big. His work embodies the recognition factor blown to bits. It's a group show that Disney curated, documented, honed messages heated up in his video trailer, and literally hung the show (more than ably assisted by partner Desiree Konian). All the work in the show is strong and supports the idea that we've moved into the digital era century and artists of all persuasions have been at the forefront of the medium that changed everything. It's not new as much as it is boldly going into space, inside and out, literally and figuratively.
The collision is that we have a generation of artists now that didn't know what life was like before Apple, MS, or Gameboy. DNasaB mixes the art generations with a smooth physicality that transitions from the front of the gallery to the back. The attraction of painting, sculpture, and photography explodes in the farthest darkest cranny of the gallery. It's the glittering nightmare of the apocalyptic, a Blade Runner passion to push relentlessly in love and hate and madness until it's a smoldering wreck, flickering LED's sizzle cooly in the darkness. It's alive. Don't piss it off, but definitely try to see it in this formula, in the real. But what's real? What's time and distance between friends? Link up and see all the work and the artists speaking bumping colliding informing at times chaotically.H-O 9/28/12

The Spencer Tunick Installation shoot for EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK - THE MERCER ST. MEDICAL CASE. It was produced by GalleryBeat's Kickstarter Project as a pledge level offering. It was a HAPPENING yo.
Eden has no shame.
It happened July 1st, at 4PM at the Mercer St. Medical office under the guidance of Dr. Daryl and Emily Isaacs. A blazing hot Sunday afternoon in the heart off Soho New York. The road to OK Street had enough potholes to have the producers scrambling for anxiety medication, as the 'office' was hysterical about mobs of naked anarchists running amok in the pristine new facility. This is the stuff of documentary movie making. Control. The feeling that one doesn't have it will create drama, maybe we need the drama, I know someone needs it. A good story needs it. So we have it, but it's love and guts that succeed the day.
To the Models, who not only are backers and believers of family medicine, but the family medicine, and the GalleryBeat crew that all came together with humanity, just as we came into the world; butt naked.
The Tunick Experience Crew included Kristin Bowler Tunick, Alyssa D'Anna.
The GalleryBeat Crew included producers Ken Kambara, Sono Osato, plus Ron Rocheleau, Tamara Weg, Lauren Zallo, Alec Isaacs, Savannah Spirit, and Paul H-O. The top two photos are by Lauren Zallo and Paul H-O and the second two are by Savannah Spirit. More stills included below by artist Savannah Spirit.

Episode 75 Part 2 of 3 (sometimes I wish I could have had more discretion)A long time ago, in the distant year 1994, medium-sized New York art dealers Pat Hearn, Colin De Land, and Lisa Spellman started an art fair in the the historically seedy Gramercy Hotel, famous for housing rock bands on tour and for it's piano bar. It was also located right across the street from very tony Gramercy Park, exclusive to the residents of said park, and you still need a key to enter it. This was the beginning of the contemporary art fair in the U.S., and would ultimately become one of the most lucrative trade fairs for art on earth, The Armory Show. I used to look forward to hitting the Gramercy Art Fair, with it's funky rooms turned into funkier New York and international galleries. Almost everyone had a bathroom show, and there were plenty of galleries we would never see again on the planet. Basically, it was a home-made art fair, on the cheap and using all the creativity artist and dealer could drum up for a 3 day run of fun, and maybe a sale or two.

The GalleryBeat live talk show, COOKING WITH GALLERYBEAT, avoided the skillet again by not cooking with strange fruit. We performed at the Brooklyn Museum's architectural futurama, the Rubin Pavilion on October 6th, 2011 as part of the museum's Thursday Night Series. Guests for this show were Mercer St. Medical's Dr. Daryl Isaacs, ArtNews Chief Editor Robin Cembalest, Upright Citizens Brigade's Ann Carr, World artist man/wife team Spencer and Kristin Bowler Tunick, and BM's main event artist, Sanford Biggers.more »
