It’s not everyday you get to see collaborations between UFOs and artists in a Lower East Side gallery setting. But, Paulina Peavy’s The Artist Behind The Mask at Andrew Edlin Gallery is exactly that.
Andrew Edlin hosts Peavy’s show in their back gallery—which I guess is where you’d expect to find an alien-artist collaboration—devoting their much bigger space to the more well-known Susan Te Kahurangi King’s pop culture-infused drawings. The Artist Behind The Mask isn’t your typical show stopper. In fact, at first glance, the exhibition even looks a bit boring. Seven framed mixed media drawings hang on the wall, along with a few jewel and fabric-covered masks. It doesn’t exactly scream made-by aliens.
