The Brooklynite Gallery is opening in grand style with a print exhibition from BAST. The show, “Nose Candy”, offers new works exploring the theme of jewelry. BAST has a love for confusion, his foray into bling will be utter chaos. I can’t wait.
BAST doesn’t offer preview images for his shows. The image above, “Video 8” silkscreen embellished with spray paint, is representative of recent work.
This is the inaugural exhibit for the Brooklynite. The new building was designed by the gallery’s director, Rae McGrath. The manifesto for this new space gave me the impression that the folks in charge have seen enough art to be certain when something works.
10 June – 12 July
