Phantom Captain: Art & Crowdsourcing, the exhibit I curated for apexart, New York, opened this past Wednesday, October 18. Rather than go on and on, you can read my essay on the apexart website, or visit the show in person until November 25. It features works by Harrell Fletcher and Miranda July, Aaron Koblin, Allison Wiese, Davy Rothbart and Found Magazine, and Peter Edmunds.
The opening was packed with your friends and mine, Carlos Lama, Laura Lark, Allison Wiese, Delicia Harvey, Eileen Maxson, Luca Buvoli, Aaron Koblin, Mary Ellen Carroll, Susie Rosmarin, Jeff Howe, Barbara London, Amanda McDonald Crowley, Paul Miller (DJ Spooky), Art Jones, Nick Hallett, Marisa Olson, Pamela Clapp, Yona Backer, and many mohair.
An exceptionally big thanks to Sara Hines and Steven Rand of apexart for the grand invitation and rock star reception.
Laura Lark has written a review on her blog here.
