I'm very excited to be part of new exhibit by video artist Charles Atlas, who is best known for his work with Leigh Bowery, Merce Cunningham, Antony and The Johnsons and Scottish dancer/choreographer Michael Clark. So I'm flattered to be included and have been a friend of Charlie since director Tom Rubnitz (of Pickle Surprise fame) introduced us in the 80s. Charlie shot me performing two original songs--one comedy and one not intentionally comedic--and there's an interview segment as well. I hope you'll check it out!

February 7 – March 14, 2015
Opening reception: Friday, February 6, 2015, 6-8 pm
Luhring Augustine is pleased to announce the opening of The Waning of Justice, a solo exhibition by the influential American film and video artist Charles Atlas. This will be Atlas’ second solo exhibition with the gallery; his first gallery exhibition, The Illusion of Democracy, was the inaugural show at our Bushwick space in February 2012.
The Waning of Justice will include all new work made by the artist for this exhibition. Several autonomous video works will all be synchronized by imagery, duration, and soundtrack to create one dynamic visual experience. The videos in the exhibition feature sunsets shot by Atlas in Florida while at the Rauschenberg Residency as well as new footage of New York legendary superstar, The Lady Bunny. 
This month, Prestel released Charles Atlas, the first major publication on Atlas’ work, featuring writings by Stuart Comer, Douglas Crimp, Douglas Dunn, Johanna Fateman, and Lia Gangitano.
