Founder of the Bushwick Art Crit Group, Christopher Stout is now the head of his own gallery, which has its very first art opening with sculptor Phoenix Lindsey Hall’s solo exhibition, “Shepard.” The centerpiece of the show, a 14-foot replica of the fence Matthew Shepard was chained to while his assailants tortured him to death, is a stark confrontation with a symbol of hate and anti-gay violence. “It’s a very somber show,” Stout explained. “New York tends to show very serious work in the fall and it seems like a very important way but also a very different way to talk about some of the issues we’re interested in exploring.”
