Damn, updating this thing takes too many hours, and life is busy working, planning and raising funds for future voyages. Speaking of, please come to our first fundraiser at Silent Barn this Saturday (see below).

I'm also working with Glowlab (where I am currently showing photos in a group exhibit) who has generously agreed to share part of their booth at the the Fountain Art Fair (part of the upcoming NYC Armory Show Art Week). So the Swimming Cities will be having an art sale to help get our butts over to Slovenia, and eventually Venice. If you know any kinda-famous artists that would be willing to donate a piece to our cause, please get in touch.

Also, I've been invited to show my photographic interpretation of the title of the new These Are Powers album, All Aboard Future, at their record release art show at Secret Project Robot on February 13th. More info below.

Shaking up the traditional art world model of the month-long-show-with-opening-reception, Glowlounge opts to evolve over the course of four weeks. Each Thursday night we’ll stay open late with a changing selection of artworks and participating artists in attendance to discuss their projects with our guests. These nighttime lounges will have limited capacity, and reservations may be secured via email to rsvp@glowlab.com. The exhibition will also be on view during our regular gallery hours.

Glowlounge brings long-time Glowlab collaborators Steve Lambert, Sal Randolph and Lee Walton together with current gallery artists CutUp, Beka Goedde, Heather L. Johnson, David Kesting, Roberto Mollá and Mark Price. We’ll also introduce works by Paloma Crousillat, Pablo Helguera, Emily Henretta, Brian Leo, Casey Porn, Tod Seelie and additional artists as the show unfolds in an environment of chance and discovery.

For further information please contact gallery Director Christina Ray: 718.388.5911 or info@glowlab.com

Gallery hours: Tuesday-Sunday, 12-6pm
Location: 30 Grand Street between Thompson Street and 6th Avenue

ALL ABOARD FUTURE (Record Release show)
Friday, February 13 at 6:00pm

All Aboard Future is a full-length audio recording to be released world-wide by These Are Powers on the Dead Oceans label on February 17, 2009. 13 artists from New York, Chicago and Beijing were chosen by the band to interpret the concept for All Aboard Future—the possibility, potential and rising of a positive and dynamic New Age.

These artists had the option of listening to the album or to interpret the album title independent of the music, creating a collaboration between These Are Powers and a collective expression of the future. Their work will be on display in addition to other submissions from artists worldwide for this unique event.
