Creative provocateur Greg Habernyâ€”receiver of this very funny rejection letter from the MoMAâ€”unveils his new exhibit, “The Glory Hole,” at Brooklyn’s McCaig Welles Gallery this Saturday, but it’s not nearly as homoerotic as it sounds. The show will feature a collection of mixed media art that highlight “higher energy costs, falling home values, and the tight credit market.” The new work by the Larry Clark inspired artist features his Pre-Apocalyptic Expressionistic style that includes a blend of street and contemporary art created “using guns, explosives, fire and most importantly, paint.” And with news today of the
bail out takeover of mass mortgage lenders Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the show is even more relevant as the installation ultimately pays “homage to Americaâ€™s housing debacle as artist Greg Haberny unapologetically fills a much needed niche in affordable housing: affordable art.” Click below for a sampling of some of our favorite works by Haberny including the very clever piece entitled: “Terry Richardson’s Dental Floss.”
