crazy lady, a group exhibition celebrating the hysteric-nympho-witch-spinster in all of us!

Here’s the press release,  a Time Out New York pick, review, Huffington Post feature and Artillery Magazine review on my latest curatorial endeavor, Crazy Lady, a group exhibition up now through October 8 at Schroeder Romero & Shredder Gallery.  I’d planned to explore the theme further through a performance night, as well as film and literary components (see lists below for examples of the latter), but finding venues, and organizing such events during one of the  busiest times of the year  for me  – the first few weeks of the Fall semester – was just too much. Regardless, the show rocks, so check it out before it closes!
