CWGB Talk@Piergo 2000 Show #2 -Facebook phenom Oliver Wasow is an acclaimed photography-based artist who also ran one of the best East Village art galleries in the 1980's: C.A.S.H Newhouse. Not only is his work in international collections, it has also graced the covers of Popular Mechanics and Visonaire. We, on the other hand, had noticed that he had garnered a huge following on Fb for his amazingly funny found photographs. He was working on a major book of found photographs. It was quite an interview that began on an easy pace, but like a sentence that scrunches down to tiny letters at the end - you could say that's what happened - he needed an hour and we only had 20 minutes. He was great, but never said a word to me since. I guess we could have added actual images but got sidetracked or I got lazy. Check out his site though, wonderful work.
Correction - the gallery is named Pierogi 2000 is now corrected on the headline - sorry!
This clip from Talkshow #2, taped in front of a clamoring live audience at Brooklyn's Pierogi gallery, features artist and Facebook wizard Oliver Wasow. Oliver was the owner of one of the seminal artist-run galleries in New York City, Cash Newhouse. The East Village and downtown NYC churned out many of the great American artists in that short but hot time from the mid/late 70s and into the 80s, including the likes of Cindy Sherman, Jim Jarmusch, and Patti Smith. Hosted, as always, by GalleryBeat's own Paul H-O and Dr. Lisa Levy, with her Rx pad at the ready. Artist Jim Torok is on exhibition, Rev Jen, Fuzzanova, Hula hoop artist Jacqui Becker and gallerist visionary HUDSON of Feature Inc. were also on the bill. GB Producer - Paul H-O, Samantha Schlaifer, Cameras - Gaia Baldini, Aimee Graham, Editor - Gaia Baldini.
This is the second tremendous blow to the fine arts in New York; the first being GalleryBeat itself, then the bold move into creating a GalleryBeat Talk Show that puts everyone in the artist's seat, and it burns, baby. But it's only art, and it's alive!
Taped LIVE on April 19th, at Pierogi 2000, 177 North 9th Street, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, New York.
This show includes guests Fuzzanova, Jim Torok, Reverand Jen, Oliver Wasow, HUDSON, Jaqui Becker with Syrie Moskowitz and hosted by Dr. Lisa Levy and Paul H-O.

Come to hipster-shitty Williamsburg to an event that isn't artsy /hipster and not cool! Thus it's un-cool and pissing irony but fun and we just get down on the love for our guests and that is enough ands, and we are doing it because it's our amazing and not-amazing because we're like terrible capitalists. But in a really good venue, Pierogi 2000!
