Another Group Show: 3rd Ward

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2011

I have admittedly neglected my blog of late as I have been traveling for work, moving my girlfriend out of her apartment and into mine (a month long process for those considering such an arrangement), and just trying to make that paper. My blog was never designed to be The Biggup Barnett Cohen Blog but I did want to let you know that I have three pieces in a group show at 3rd Ward. The show opens this Friday May 6th from 7pm to 10pm. For those of you not in the know, 3rd Ward is dope and the opening should be super dope as (1) it is a multimedia gallery show (2) will probably involve alcohol and some funky tunes and (3) is taking place in Bushwick, the hotbed of all things art in New York. Yeah Chelsea, I said it. Please note that I am unfortunately not going to be at the opening as I will be attending a bachelor party in Ibiza for one of my boys who lives in London. There is no good excuse for not attending your own opening but if there was one, I think mine just might be it.

I am in a group show @ the International Center for Photography entitled Moment of Recognition.

The show, which is curated by Amy Arbus, opens this Friday January 21st and runs until March 20th.
ICP is located @ 1114 6th Avenue between 42/43rd Streets.

Here is a description of the show: “Moment of Recognition is an exploration of portraiture in the new millennium. Intrigued by what is revealed when a split-second in time is captured, curator Amy Arbus asked her former students and teaching assistants to submit images of subjects that were in motion, either physically or emotionally. Included in the hundred or so prints on view are images of reality TV star wannabes, male escorts, survivors of genocide, Hasidic Jews in Williamsburg, self-portraits, and functional as well as dysfunctional families. This new generation of photographers combine various genres like reportage, fashion, lifestyle, and sports to reinvent portraiture and create pictures uniquely their own.”

Ps. I want to give a shout out to 3rd Ward for a biggup about the show on their blog.
