TONIGHT: “Flame Tempered” A Solo Show by Phoenix Lindsey-Hall

Flame Tempered
Friday, November 22, 2013
6:00pm to 10:00pm
at The Living Gallery

The Living Gallery is proud to announce, “Flame Tempered,” the first New York solo exhibition of mixed media artist Phoenix Lindsey-Hall. With graceful chaos, Lindsey-Hall uses ceramic to transform everyday objects that were used as weapons in specific gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender hate crimes.

The cornerstone of this show is her large-scale ceramic installation, which is derived from a hate crime that happened just blocks from The Living Gallery in 2008. “Flame Tempered” is an organic cyclone of over 70 ceramic baseball bats suspended in a mid air tumble. Illuminated with a single bare bulb casting long shadows through out the space, the work is an explosion of drama, perception and emotion. Peggy McGlone, art critic for The Star Ledger in Newark, NJ, recently described the piece as “at once beautiful and intimidating.”

This exhibition is made possible through support from Slideluck, where Lindsey-Hall recently received Crowd Favorite at Slideluck Bushwick II, The Living Gallery and Brooklyn Brewery.

"Apples in Bushwick" A Screening of Visual Artists from Almaty, Kazakhstan

In the past the city was surrounded by apple orchards. Sadly, not anymore. Folklore has it that Almaty is the birthplace of all the apples in the world. Some of the artists have studied abroad, and others are self taught. The showcase represents various works, both commercial and independent projects made in the last decade.

The program will consist of 4 parts:

1) Music videos
2) Video art
3) Animation
4) Short films

A Q&A will follow the screening.

Zoo Lion: Aesthetic Porn

Zoo Lion

A retrospective of collage art from 2010-2013.

September 13, 2013 from 6:00pm-11:00pm
at The Living Gallery

  • $3 suggested donation
  • Free beverages and collage prints
  • Weird performances & sexual projections
  • DJ Peter Fonda AKA Ratfoot
  • Nude body-painted model

My work comes from a mind with absolutely no formal art training or technique. These pieces are a rumination upon the subject that interests me most; sex. It began as a teenage hobby, cutting and pasting landscapes and objects into new images, until I got my hands on my first 1960s era soft core porn, eventually leading to the collection of every smut magazine from every era. This set me at odds with many people such as my mother, past roommates, extended family, and potential employers, but it also happened to charm just as many people as it offended.

With a BS in Psychology, I have found the social impact of my porn-art just as intriguing as the responses of those mainly concerned with aesthetics. Sexual relationships as well as an open mind to the concept of sex itself are vital elements to happiness in life.

~ Zoo Lion

Zoo Lion presents Aesthetic Porn not to fetishize or arouse,
but to celebrate the beauty and abundance of sex culture.
