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.

Provocation: I am in another group show

Thursday, March 17th, 2011

As one group show comes down, another group show goes up.

You have until this Sunday March 20th to catch my two photographs that are part of the Moment of Recognition show at ICP. Next Saturday March 26th another group show entitled Provocation in which I have one big piece goes up at the powerHouse Arena in Dumbo in Brooklyn. Provocation is a “juried photo invitational” according to the New York Photo Festival, the host of the show, and damn if I am not skippy to be part of it given that the jurors included Sophie Morner, the Publisher & Editor of Capricious Magazine, Jessie Wender, Associate Picture Editor at The New Yorker and Sam Barzilay, the Festival Director of The New York Photo Festival As with most of the shows at the powerHouse, the show is a salon and so you’ll just to have to come to the opening to find my piece or rather to have me point it out to you as no name tags (i.e. artist names, titles of the pieces, and print types) are on the wall.

Ps. The above photo is not mine (though I do own it as a postcard) and it is not in the upcoming show. It’s a photograph by Martin Parr that makes me chuckle. Given all this business of shows and openings, I thought it appropriate.

I am attending the summer residency in photography at the School of Visual Arts (SVA) and I have been asked to blog about my experience for SVA. I feel like a real blogger, not a just man with a blog but a veritable rubber-stamped blogger. If you want to read why I am not getting much sleep these days, why I generally eat dinner at 11 pm (two beers and a small portion of Vegetable Mei Fun from Hood Hing, my local bullet-proofed Chinese restaurant), and why I am usually up before sunrise, then check out my first post for the school entitled IN THE PRESENT TENSE.

Small Victories

Sunday, May 23rd, 2010

My blog begins with a happy bang and an appropriate title.

Last Friday, I awoke to an email from the Canadian artist Jeff Hamada who runs BOOOOOOOM! a killer art/photo site to let me know that I made the cut. My photo, featured here, was accepted for a group show entitled Small Victories at the Above Second Gallery in Hong Kong. I am tickled to think that a photo of mine is hanging on a wall in a gallery in Hong Kong while I sit and drink my morning coffee in Brooklyn.

Here are some photos from the exhibition, which were taken after all the booze had been consumed and most folks had left or so says Jeff.
