There’s an explanation for all the sudden artwork outside the McNally joint on the Bowery. UK art collective Lazarides will be hosting a “pop-up” show there from September 26 – October 12 [link].
“The Outsiders” will open on the 26th September and run through till 12th October. The show will feature works from Faile, Paul Insect, JR, Antony Micallef, Jonathan Yeo, Miranda Donovan, Invader, David Choe, Mark Jenkins, Todd James, Vhils, Polly Morgan, Mode 2, BAST, Conor Harrington and Zevs.
