YES, THAT’S RIGHT. Outsider art by definition is antagonist art. Self-annointed artists are often antagonistic artists. So this news is a propos. The Antagonist Movement with its roots in the East Village has invited me up to the Niagara Club for a one night group show on Thursday, September 6. I have accepted, and eagerly look forward to my first show in New York where I’ll show five or six works.
Here is the Niagara info:
112 Ave A at the corner of 7th St. East Village NYC
The gallery is downstairs past the bar.
Show opens at 9 PM. All artwork hangs for the duration of the night until closing time at 2 AM.
