John Belknap: Bathroom Interiors
Special Special
44 East 1st Street
New York, NY
Opens Thursday, April 27th, 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Event Page

We’re happy to announce that AFC’s awesome intern John Belknap has a month-long solo show that opens tonight at Special Special. Even if John weren’t part of the AFC fam, we’d recommend his work. Special Special is gallery/retail space inspired by museum stores that produces functional editions with artists. For this project, John is considering the most intimate of spaces: the bathroom.

Works include a self-portrait based on a childhood photo, printed on a shower curtain (what would our childhood selves think watching adult us shower?), limited edition postcards of bathroom interiors, and of course, GIFs. All of these components will be installed in dialogue with the architecture of the space, alongside collage and photographs.

Pics after the jump!

It’s a bit of a slow week for the art world, but that’s just fine by us. There are a handful of events we’re really looking forward to this week and those will be much better enjoyed without the stress of darting around to a dozen other openings. Those include Martha Wilson’s Activist History Teach-In at The 8th Floor on Wednesday night, Alex Ebstein’s solo show at Victori + Mo Friday night, and Sophie Calle at Green-Wood Cemetery on Saturday. Calle will be taking visitor’s confessions and entombing them. Never turn down an opportunity to check out Green-Wood, and certainly never an opportunity for consequence-free secret-telling.
