DESCRIPTION

“A show about trust”
 (not really)

A show about trust” or new work from Claire Valdez and Charles Fogarty, with work selected from Ilene Godofsky's Wish You Were Here and THIS LANDSCAPE

“A sleazy good time”

Featuring “suggestive photography” and “enthusiastic seating”

"Legions of Brando impersonators have turned his performance in this seminal 1954 motorcycle movie into self-parody, but it's still a sleazy good time."
-Dave Kehr (In reference to The Wild One, but regarding something else entirely)

Organized by Heaven Gallery and Charles Fogarty with thematic inspiration taken from Marlon Brando’s perfect characterization of  “Johnny” in László Benedek’s 1953 classic The Wild One, and the paradox of an allegorically dynamic character.
