Boo-Hooray and Gavin Brown's Enterprise present A Living Collage

Info

Gavin Brown's Enterprise
291 Grand Street
New York, NY 10002
July 8 – July 31, 2015

Words

While last weekend saw the final show at Gavin Brown's downtown, West Side space (he's moving the Enterprise to a former Brewery in Harlem, close to where he lives) this week saw the opening of one of the best exhibitions I've seen in a while, at his East Side project space in Chinatown. A Living Collage: The Living Theatre, Judith Malina and Julian Beck 1947-2015 opened on Wednesday evening, and gave a glimpse into the paper-based world of the legendary American experimental theatre company through flyers, posters, programs and prints. Many of these same pieces are offered for sale, or in the case of some of the smaller items: for free, or whatever donation you felt inclined to make. All this gave an unprecedented look into the history of New York theatre, music and arts through the decades and eyes of two of the city's pioneers and patrons in these fields. The fact that you could take some of that home with you was simply mind-blowing. Not to be missed.

Religious Observance

Info

Boo-Hooray, LA
413 Rose Ave.
Venice, CA 90291
March 19 – April 19, 2015

Words

After recently holding an exhibition devoted to the work of Ed and Deanna Templeton at the LA Art Book Fair, New York's Boo-Hooray gallery continue to exert their influence on the West Coast with a group photography show featuring the likes of Ray Potes, Tobin Yelland, C.R. Stecyk III, Andrea Sonnenburg and Jerry Hsu. The curation is logically complimentary, bringing together artists whose obvious confluence is where the subcultural fields of skateboarding, zine making and street photography meet. Following an opening reception between 7 and 10pm tonight, the exhibition can be viewed by appointment until April 19th.

–01. Published by Boo-Hooray and Exile Books.

Words

Her Perfume Tears is a book of photographs, artwork, poetry and lyrics from the NYC-based musician, artist and activist Lizzi Bougatsos, who is a member of the bands Gang Gang Dance and Angelblood. Released in a limited run of 350 copies and published by Boo-Hooray and Exile Books, it is sure to sell out quickly. If you need any more incentive, each copy comes wrapped in a beautifully designed, origami-folded dust jacket with a zine focused on her poetry and songwriting process, titled Enchanted By Her Squalor

Dreamweapon: The Art and Life of Angus MacLise 1938-1979

Info

120 pages
Full colour
Perfect bound
Edition of 1000

Words

An original member of the Velvet Underground who left the band before their first paid gig, Angus MacLise is a mysterious figure in the countercultural history of 1960s America. It is his work in the Theatre of Eternal Music that I am the most enamoured with and this catalog from the Dreamweapon exhibit that encapsulates his output, contained in a suitcase that was left for safekeeping with LaMonte Young and Marian Zazeela before he split for a life that would eventually end up devoted to Buddhist practice in Nepal.

Before launching the influential 1960s anarchist art publications Black Mask and UAW/MF, Ben Morea was an abstract painter in New York City. His work was all believed to be lost, but miraculously five large canvases were discovered under a bed in Hell’s Kitchen. This recently opened exhibition at Boo-Hooray, curated by Johan Kugelberg, marks the first ever showing of these bold 'new' works.
