“I’m talking about carving out a place in the larger culture where a condition of abnormality can be sustained\, where imagining the un known and the unknowable — impossible to buy or sell — is the primary enter prise. Crazy! says anyone with an ounce of business sense. Right. Exactly. Crazy.”
Holland Cotter\, The New York Times\, February 12\, 2009.

RJ Supa and David Louis Fierman are pleased to present HELL\, NO! \, a group exhibition at the Convent of Saint Cecilia in Brooklyn\, NY. For two weekends\, from April 30 to May 2 and May 7 to 9\, the former convent will be activated by new work from over thirty artists working in varied me dia. Heralded by a riff on Ugo Rondinone’s ubiquitous affirmation emblazone d on the New Museum\, RJ Supa’s HELL\, NO! presents both a celebration and a warning: a celebration of artists working today\, desperate to create des pite the diminishing art market\, and a warning not to give in: to say (to whomever) HELL\, NO!.    HELL\, NO! takes Holland Cotter’s call to arms and runs with it.
Artists include Leidy Churchman\, Lucas Michael\, Becky Brown\, Wardell Milan\, Jeremy Eilers\, Richard Ziello\, Matthew Kirk\, Fa ren Ziello\, Michael Mahalchick\, Beth Beverly\, Jaimes Mayhew\, Amanda Mah er\, Cyle Metzger\, Benjamin Fredrickson\, Victoria Keddie\, Hank Shedd\, G retchen Winterkorn\, Carter\, Titus Kaphar\, Jaeeun Lee\, Joshua Johnson\, Davina Semo\, Juan Betancurth\, Mike Kenney\, Michael Hilsman\, RJ Supa\, J ulie Opperman\, Virginia Ines Vergara\, Nora Griffin\, Elias Melad\, Marian na Ellenberg\, Michael Rudokas\, Christian Dietkus\, and many more.

The artists’ varied work deals with issues of violence\, abstraction \, sexuality\, reflection\, medicine\, science\, religion\, consumer cultur e and its detritus\, and art history\, among other wide ranging topics. HEL L\, NO! aims to find the commonalities amongst the discord\, to find the th ematic and formal links that bring a cohesion to the chaos. Further\, the s pace itself\, a worn out\, bare bones\, beautiful and eerie former convent plays as much a role in the show as the art itself. Its quiet dignity\, hol ding on in the face of half-finished glass towers surrounding it\, presents a final HELL\, NO!\, reminiscent of the nuns who once inhabited it\, worki ng furiously to ward off condemnation and oblivion.

\n


The openi ng night celebration will be on April 30 from 7-11 PM\, with a roster of ne w and thrilling performances by Fetchin’ Gretchen\, Juan Bethancurt\, Jaime s Mayhew\, Victoria Keddie\, and more. A full schedule will follow on www.davidlouisfierman.com.

The Convent of Saint Cecilia is located at 21 Monitor Street\, Broo klyn\, NY. For more information please email davidlouis@davidlouisfierman.c om or call 917 593 4086.
