Morgan Blair’s brightly colored, hard edged amorphous forms and patterns suggest hypothetical scenarios in which personal and pop culture references interbreed to form optical absurdities. In this solo exhibition at Ace Hotel New York, site-specific murals are paired with recent paintings.
Blair’s recent works have appeared city-wide, from the pages of the New York Times to the awning ofSilent Barn, on skate decks and recently, on a cement mixing truck in collaboration with Andrea Bergart.
Blair earned a BFA in Illustration from Rhode Island School of Design in 2008 and is based in Brooklyn, NY.
Join us for an opening reception on Thursday December 5th from 6pm-8pm
A little while back I backed a Kickstarter project by my pals band Bad Credit No Credit. My reward was that they’d record any song of my choice, so I selected the theme from Matlock. Here it is.
This weekend at acehotel (NYC), it’s Codeathon 3. We’re teaming up with Clinton Foundation, Tumblr, Jawbone, Sweetgreen, and Gigit to provide developer/designer teams with a healthy + awesome environment to design apps in the interest of public health.
Developers: Want a free Up band, access to the Jawbone API, and the chance to walk away w/ a BIG JAMBOX? RSVP here, there’s still room for a team or two. Going fast.
Boston-based activists / artists Jordyn Bonds and Mike Gintz penned an open letter on climate change (also avail in the French), and took it public via the crowd-funding platform Indiegogo, with the goal of having their message published in the WSJ.The design is stark and uncluttered; the message bold and direct. In all 308 individuals contributed a total of $34,853 which, while short on the WSJ goal, is making two great things happen. First, the letter will be published in this Sunday’s L.A. Times. Second, they’re making a nearly $7k donation to the Alliance for Climate Education.Read the letter. Write a letter.
