Special Special

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!
