Art in Odd Places 2021: NORMAL
A group show hosted by One Art Space in TriBeCa, New York, and curated by Furusho von Puttkammer. The show features the work of street graffiti pioneer Albert “Al” Diaz; photo legend Adrian Buckmaster; rising photographer Lanee Bird; music icon Gavin Rayna Russom of LCD Soundsystem and Black Meteoric Star; two-time Radio City Music Hall composer Zachery Allan Starkey; and 29 other U.S. and international artists.
The show aimed to refocus art’s representation of the “other.”
“You see the effect in nightclubs, in the DIY spaces, in the gentrified streets of Brooklyn,” she said. “It spreads through the underground like a virus. No longer are we queers outcasts, forced to blend into the vibrating populace of a city too busy to care to notice us. We have become fashionable, a trend that clothing companies and dating apps can cash in too. The history of our community as queer, as artists, as New Yorkers, is being lost in a heaping, rotting mess of body hair photography, lingerie performance art, and an over-emphasis on labels.” -Furusho von Puttkammer, Curator.
Partial proceeds for the show went to CPC-Project Reach, a youth and adult, LGBTQ+, POC-run, multiracial, multi-gender, grassroots, anti-discrimination, training and drop-in center.
