What happens when deserving mid-career artists decide that they want to hit the big time—the REALLY big time….as in the art world’s most prestigious biennial exhibits? For over a decade now the answer lies with the artist collaborative known as The Biennial Project. Formed by Eric Hess, Anna Salmeron and our friends, the “Project’s” objective is to develop a collective body of work that will ultimately be featured in as many biennial exhibitions as possible—especially the really cool ones.
Once again The Biennial Project is letting you in on a few of our latest endeavors in the form of a brand new show at Atlantic Works Gallery. We are calling it In Bed with The Biennial Project because so many fantastic artists from all over the world have been sweet enough, and well smart enough, to work with us, thereby getting ‘in bed with us’. We also derived the title from a piece we saw in Havana, Cuba by notorious artist and close friend Nonardo Perea entitled ‘In Bed with Nonardo’.
When you come visit the gallery you will be greeted by us actually in a real bed. Please join us in the sack. You can watch Teen Mom with us and even eat on the mattress with us.
Also at the show we will be having affordable botox by The Boston Beauty Nurse, Rachel Moloney RN, BSN who happens to be our cosmetic professional as well as that of a lot of other legendary artists. I mean you can’t find fame in the art world with out looking your very best. Your art work isn’t going sell itself!! Bring your checkbook (or Venmo app)!!
Acclaimed photographer Paul Weiner has agreed to do a limited number of artist portrait sessions using his seductive flashlight technique during the reception. We will have a stylist on call to help you into the most fabulous yellow attire supplied by us. The flashlight photos he took of us in Venice, during the opening week of The Venice Biennale, will be on display as well.
The Biennial Project will also be trumpeting snip bits of some of our performance art over the past few years which will include videos of the Biennial Project Marching through The Venice Biennale in out full yellow clad glory with a petition to demand our spot in the next Biennale and our windshield washing campaign we held to ‘welcome’ the ICA to our long time neighborhood of East Boston. We will also be displaying the work we did when we participated in The 00bienal de la habana in Havana Cuba last year.
These and more art will be on exhibition at Atlantic Works Gallery by The Biennial Project for a chunk of November. Come out to the reception for fun, botox, food, photography and to ride our coattails to fame and fortune in the art world or maybe the under worlds.
