LITERATURE» Full Dark, No Stars - Stephen King's new novella questions mankind's ability to trust others.
MUSIC» The Top 30 Albums of 2010 - Fashionably, fabulously late, our favorite music (and believe me, there was a LOT) of 2010, the year that some have called the best year for music ever. And only some of those fools work here. Plenty of usual suspects, lots of ties and a few surprises that I won't spoil, including our unexpected #1.
MUSIC» Live: Surfer Blood/The Drums at Lincoln Hall, Chicago, IL - Remember when Weezer used to put together records that you could sing along to and rock out to? That's what Surfer Blood's show was like!
The show, which will be running through February 7th, consist of collage, drawing, painting, sound, and sculpture works "as varied as large-scale ink drawings of religious figures, Rembrandt etchings, cowboys and nude women; paintings with familiar compositions inspired by a Kodak manual on how to take a good picture; books and pamphlets containing sketches and musings; and even Dolly Parton, ready to tell their fortunes."
The gallery, located at 531 West 26th Street in New York City, currently represents some two-dozen emerging and established artists. To facilitate the show, Mulroney re-imagines" the gallery as "a more intimate, studio-like space [divided] with constructions, furniture, and partitions all made of cardboard." That last bit, the cardboard construction, is a nod to Mulroney's past and "the haunted houses he built with his brothers as a child." Also factoring into Mulroney's viewpoint, from which "mixed media and diverse content inspire active participation by the viewer," are Mulroney's "formative experiences as an alter boy, his love of Polaroid pictures, and his grandmother's wish to attend as many Padres' games as possible." The premise of the venue's reconstruction, according to Mulroney, is to "expose the viewer to a fascinating, interconnected universe of religious and scatological thought."
The opening reception for "Follow the Nosebleeds" will be held from 6-8pm on January 8th, when the gallery returns to operation after a holiday season closure. SEE ALSO: www.markmulroney.com
