In collaboration with Native Shoes, FriendsWithYou opens “:)” on June 10, 2011. The exhibition finds the Miami-based duo creating an interactive experience through the entirety of the new The Hole space on the Bowery.
Past the spinning neon candies in our storefront windows, you will find a garden of colorful beings raise up around you. Skip over smiling puddles on the gallery floor to see giggle sticks, smirking smoke flumes, splat-happy wall works and a grinning ghost or two. In the left rear gallery, kinetic painting blink at you from the walls as their heads roll around each other. On the right, a massive chandelier of an inflatable sculpture fills the room with energy and light.
It is all about experience. And, of course, fun! The show runs through August 6, 2011.
