JEN HITCHINGS

It’s a little last-minute, but there’s a group show tonight called MIXTAPE 2 that opens at Michael David’s studio in Bushwick, which features a few works by an artist that just came across my radar: Jen Hitchings.

JULIETTE LE

Juliette has done several illustrations for our sister publication: The Deli. Now she has a new website for her work. The source material for this Paris-born, Brooklyn-based artist comes from everywhere: op-art, 2D animation, Japanese woodblock prints, the Beatles’ Yellow Submarine.

REY-ZORRO

Rey-Zorro (nee Claudia Rey) spent the last thirty years deconstructing popular modes of communication and has now arrived at a new expression she calls “disinstallation.” At its heart, disinstallation takes cultural signifiers—advertisements, logos, superheroes—and removes them from their native context. If it sounds like Pop-Art Mach 2, the Brooklyn-based Rey gives the style a makeover that accounts for the conspiratorial...
