Dumbo Arts Center's New Show... Amen Bitch

Dumbo Arts Center is pleased to announce: HOLY HOLES: ABSOLUTE STALLS
Curated by Denise Carvalho.

It's one of the few typically terrible traditional summer group shows we're looking forward to. Religion, power and economics....three of MAO's favorite issues, all in one exhibition. We at MAO just love the DAC!

Amen_bitch_Dylan_mortimer_DACArtists in the show include : Brent Wahl, Dylan Mortimer, Grady Gerbracht, Hadassa Goldvicht,
Jenny Marketou, Joseph Bennett, Adriana Varella, Angela Freiberger, Gearóid Dolan,
Tobaron Waxman, Kimberly Simpson, Karin Giusti, Marcia X, Meirav Leshem,
Kwabena Slaughter, and Neil Beloufa.

This new show opens June 14th and runs till August 3rd. There's a curator's talk: Sunday, July 27th, 2008, 6 - 7 PM.

Plus, there's just something so wonderfully irreverent about this... we just had to post a photo of the work today. 

It's a limited edition by artist Dylan Mortimer.

Here's some details about this work :

Dylan Mortimer has created a special edition of jewelry pendants on the occasion of the exhibition, Holy Holes: Absolute Stalls. In keeping with the theme of the exhibition, "Amen Bitch" explores the paradox of faith itself. The piece unites spontaneity and sarcasm, belief and doubt. In a larger body of work that fuses contemporary hip hop with holy scripture, the work aims to comment on the organic interaction between language and art, the sacred and the profane. Amen Bitch is hip, sexy, bling, gaudy, garish, flashy, blasphemous, irreverent and holy… Amen Bitches

Ok this is the kind of bling to wear to Low and High Tea in The Pines. I just love it!

Right before they tear you appart with looks and comments, you flash your bling and a smile and that will take care of it!
