Beginnning September 28, “Boys I Know,” a group exhibit showcasing the works of 5 multimedia artists, will show at Rouge 58. Artists include Milo Carney, A. Jesse Jiryu Davis, Ryan Day, Matt McCormick and Christopher Ser, and give the exhibit its title because of their relationship with curator Pebbles van Peebles. From the gallery:
Boys I Know” is the love child of nightlife goddess and all around Renaissance woman of the concrete jungle, Pebbles van Peebles. In an effort to explore and expose the art-making that surrounds all of us in our day to day lives, Pebbles reached out to five male artists she knows, living and working in New York. Some make their living off of art others just engage in the creative process on the side but all have a voracious commitment to creating. This constant and consistent involvement in creation is inspirational in a climate where regurgitation and consumption seem to be all that we are charged with. Rather than sit back and take in, these artists serve as an example to all of us that making and doing are oftentimes what render life worth living and this exhibit is a celebration of that.
The exhibit runs through October 9.
