Congrats to Josh Azzarella on his inclusion in a Sean Kelly Gallery Group Show
Many smart MAO readers may already know the photographic work of young artist Josh Azzarella, and it would seem some other high
attitude end Chelsea art dealers have also taken notice! (See MAO's Josh Azzarella interview Part I, and Part II)
This past Friday night, Canceled, Erased & Removed, A group Showhas opened.
The entire group show is focused on the concept of artists creating a new work of art, by eliminating or canceling elements from another image or art work. Yes, we at MAO know...it's not the most mind stretching concept for an art show.. but hey.. it's summer...so lighten up! And congratulate Josh.. cause he's been included among a list of some very important, MAO favorite, artists!
