Party’s Over Brian Leo

I love S+J’s space over on Henry Street in that area East of Chinatown that still feels a little undiscovered. We wandered in last weekend to catch one of Lauren’s fave artists’s shows, Brian Leo. The show was just extended to October 13, with a closing reception on October 9 from 6-9pm. See you there!

Brian Leo, “Party’s Over, If You Want It” will be on display at S & J Project(s), located at 191 Henry St, NYC from September 6th – October 13.

Artist Brian Leo presents a new body of paintings with a fresh new palette and iconic imagery to identify the social challenges future generations will face. His paintings address global culture, contemporary politics and the American identity. Leo will also revisit silk screening in his work to introduce images of combat drones, cats with dust busters, and portraits of artists: Ai Weiwei and James Franco. In addition, new installations will address challenging themes, including an homage to Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize, Quentin Tarantino’s film Pulp Fiction, Islamic lapidation or stoning, and an N.S.A. cocktail party.
