Art Show Photos: Jesse Albrecht, UXO (Unexploded Ordinance) Art Show, PS1 – 11/19

I presently catching up on my blogging — there are lots of shows from November that I hope to share with all of you in the next few days (if all goes as planned) so they’re likely to be brief and loaded with photos.

Those of you who have read the December Issue of the Little Village were likely moved by Yale Cohn‘s article on Jesse Albrecht, as I was. If you missed it, get to reading: here.

I made a point to drop everything and catch his gallery show at Public Space One on the 19th. The images he shared with all of us were both beautiful and disturbing – two marks of relevant,  important art. But don’t take my word for it. Read the article and then take a peek at the shots I took at the show. Then buy his book here.
