About a month ago, I was talking with Zack from Union Square’s newest bike shop/creative spaceOpen Bicycle, and he casually asked if I’d like to curate a group show in their gallery space, Chorus. The only catch was that the show would be scheduled to open about three weeks from that point, not much time to put together and promote a show. Still, I jumped at the chance and managed to assemble a show featuring fantastic work by Joe Keinberger, Fionn McCabe, Arthur Henderson, and Brian Hart.
All four of these guys live in the Boston area and continually impress me with their quality of work and dedication to their art. Several of them are involved in the Oh Nancy project, an ever-growing collaborative mythology based around a girl, a football team, sea creatures…you should probably check the site for yourself.
The opening on May 16th was a blast, and the show runs through June 10th.
If you haven’t paid a visit to the shop yet, you’re in for a treat. The layout and merchandising of the store are excellent, and the product focuses on top-quality, handmade frames and accessories from around the globe.
