Lauren Seiden in Art F City’s Must-See Art Events

This Week’s Must-See Art Events: Hacking Dystopias

by Michael Anthony Farley on February 22, 2016

Read on Art F City.

This weekend’s must-see events include a lot of AFC’s friends and favs, from Friday’s discussion on hacktivism as part of Joyce Yu-Jean Lee’s project FIREWALL Internet Cafe to fundraiser events featuring the work of AFC’s own Matthew Leifheit and F.A.G. Bar artist Macon Reed on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. But during the week, do check out solo shows from Leanne Shapton (Tuesday) and Sherrie Levine (Wednesday). Thursday’s all about dystopia, with sci-fi cityscapes by Romain Erkiletlian and found hyper-generic product packaging from Maryam Jafri. Hack on, New York.

Lauren Seiden: Yesterday So Fast

Lauren Seiden attempts to freeze objects in time by coating them in graphite—crumbling marble, falling thread, and various other materials caught mid-action. Picture Han Solo’s screaming face frozen in carbonite and you get the idea. As individual objects, one of these sculptures might be a curiosity. A whole room full of subtly lustrous, monochromatic things in various stages of falling or breaking promises to be stunning.
