I worked about twenty hours today preparing for the opening, so only a brief post today. The Q-note, a page about cultural life in Queens, interviewed me and mentioned me and the upcoming show in their blog.
At the end of the 7 train, in Flushing, Crossing Art will put the spotlight on Joshua Spodekâ€™s (joshuaspodek.com) striking linear zoetropes in the astrophysicist-entrepreneur-artistâ€™s solo show, Joshua Spodek: Motion in Stillness (Saturday, 4 p.m. â€“ 6 p.m.; artist talk, 3 p.m. â€“ 4 p.m.). This transformative retro medium, which Spodek contemporized in subway tunnels, allows viewers to see still images as if they were animated. â€œIf I actually want to meet the artists, I donâ€™t go to Chelsea; I go to smaller places. In Queens the artists get more personal attention. This show is a huge leap forward for me,â€ points out Spodek, who has even more ambitious plans, after the show wraps up at Crossing Art in July, to unveil the largest digital zoetrope yet, in Union Square with professors and students from The School of Art, Media, and Technology at Parsons The New School for Design.
Looking forward to seeing you there!
