Bowery Boys Exhibit at Deitch Projects

Posted on: March 9th, 2010 at 6:33 am by

Deitch Projects in SoHo is busy with one of its final gallery events before an anticipated June closure.  Dubbed Bowery Boys, the exhibition features new paintings by Rosson Crow, and will run though March 27.  And, as reported a couple months ago, the concrete canvas that they maintain at the corner of Bowery and East Houston will allegedly be hijacked by Shepard Fairey sometime after March 31.

Here is a brief description of the exhibit:

Bowery Boys, an exhibition of new paintings by Rosson Crow, opens at 18 Wooster Street Thursday, March 4th. This exhibition of large-scale oil paintings explores the history of “bad boys” in underground art and as an agent of culture in New York City.

From the flamboyance of a wild-style bombed train pulling into a subway station in the 80s to a haunting red opium den from Chinatown in the 1880s, Rosson explores the rebellious and lawless side of New York City history. Rendered in hallucinatory layers of oil paints and washes, her theatrical confabulations collapse centuries and synthesize styles to reveal the multiply haunted nature of interior space and the affinities that align across time.

Deitch Projects has been operating out of SoHo for more than a decade.
