~KEN BROWN: NYC STREET POP – DOORWAYS
KEN BROWN – NYC STREET POP
JAN 12 – FEB 24, 2013
TEKSERVE – 119 W 23rd ST – CHELSEA, NYC
okay, well the show rocks more F-U-N, than anything else . . . case in point – a wonderful, very fun, and super interesting historical/archival loop of painted, graffed . . . inner city doorways, Ken Brown has caught – with his camera, mostly while riding his bike – over the years.
KEN BROWN – DOORWAYS of the HOOD.
or, there is a poet – behind every door, in this – great, gritty kitty of a . . . city.
in this case: a sea-worthy . . . albeit, slightly freaked-out, blue octopus man !!
the small white exhibit sign reads: ‘As KEN BROWN’S tour shows, not every New Yorker is content to live behind an anonymous grey steel door in a glass tower. These are some personalized portals in the neighborhoods throughout the city.’
