ERIK PARKER

No one really expects much from the summer group show here in NYC. Though, as always, several manage to stand out from the fold and satiate non-traveling locals until the limelight returns post-Labor Day. The biggie this summer is without a doubt “What Nerve!

FEATURE: MATT MARELLO

Matt Marello’s last exhibition at Pierogi Gallery was in 2012. I wrote then—in an earlier iteration of this website—that it “feels strangely like walking into a temple built to convert punk-rockers and disillusioned aesthetes from oblivion back to self-discovery.” I tried pitching a review of the show to the Village Voice and Juxtapoz magazine, neither...
