“CLIPPED” Installation Now at Le Salon D’Art

Posted on: July 5th, 2011 at 6:18 am by

The hair salon-cum-gallery Le Salon d’Art at 90 Stanton Street is gearing up for its next exhibition. Entitled “CLIPPED” (a play on words for sure), the month-long showcase promises to display “appropriated material from the streets of New York City.” A group of six local artists – Andrew Matsumoto, Michael Serafino, Jeremy Penn, Flip Skip, Ari Lankin and Borbay – is transforming found materials into a completely new context.

Here is the official industry babble description:

“CLIPPED” refers to the link these artists share using printed paper as their most common found material. These works embody and perpetuate our fractured reality by literally fracturing it even further. Materials, words, and images are clipped from their original context and reborn in new situations. The end result enables the viewer to slip into an infinite realm of the past, the present, and the future.

While the requisite launch party is not until July 14, the installation is still open for public viewing. “CLIPPED” will be on display until the end of July.

Of all Hanksy’s recent output, his Donald “Dump” Trump piece on Orchard Street certainly struck a chord. Perfect timing, really. After all, it is an election year, and anything Trump is newsworthy. The presidential hopeful and star of The Apprentice is trying to insult his way to the White House. So his head sits on […]

CitizenM Hotel on the Bowery Hit with Stop-Work Order for Worksite Safety Issues

While the CitizenM hotel ascends to great heights (i.e. 19 stories) at 185 Bowery, it’s the neighbors who suffer most. Day in and day out, the congestion at the corner of Delancey disrupts not only sidewalk flow and sleep, but motor traffic. Blame constant blockages and deliveries. Well, the lack of oversight we’ve noted at […]

You’ll recall that Rosen purchased the 1913-vintage building last summer for […]
