An afterparty celebrating the opening of PIPPA GARNER: $ELL YOUR $ELF at Art Omi, the first New York institutional solo exhibition of visionary artist Pippa Garner, hosted at Kasuri's Cannonball Factory event space in Hudson. Continuing the revelry kicked off during the $ELL YOUR $ELF Opening Party taking place on July 1 from 5–8 PM at Art Omi, the afterparty will include a Garner-inspired menu of food and drink for sale from Lil' Deb's Oasis and DJs heating up the dance floor all night. Come out and celebrate the incomparable work of icon Pippa Garner.
For more than five decades, Pippa Garner has embedded her work in the world, often realizing projects outside the confines of galleries, museums, or the boundaries of what has strictly been defined as art. Her works take the form of mail-order catalogs, classified ads, garments, cars, and performances on the streets or on television. Garner offers deviant solutions for tackling everyday problems in post-Fordist America. Directly addressing the anxiety, alienation, and paranoia that courses through the office and home, Garner proposes devices to deflect, subvert, or retool the mounting pressures of productivity and visibility today. Embracing pleasure, kink, and the perversion of mass-produced products, Garner’s work imagines ways to restructure environments, everyday devices, and conceptualizations of self.
