“The Olsen Twins Hiding from the Paparazzi” has gone from being a wild idea crowded-funded by Matt Harkins and Viviana Olen (the comedic duo behind the Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum) to becoming a real brick-and-mortar affair on Grand Street, right in the heart of Williamsburg (where else?).
Tomorrow, April 22, will be the official opening day, with public viewing hours from noon to 5pm, followed by an invite-only opening gala at 8pm.
After that, the exhibition space will be holding regular viewing hours until May 1, meaning that there will be plenty of opportunities to behold the spectacular sight of the Olsen twins creatively hiding behind whatever objects they happen to have at hand, all rendered in expressively layered strokes of paint.
There will also be a wide variety of events throughout the pop-up’s run, including a The Real Housewives Symposium (April 29) and a Fan Fiction Reading Series (April 27). You can check out the full schedule on the Harkins’ and Olen’s Kickstarter page.
563 Grand Street, at the corner of Lorimer Street, Williamsburg. April 22 – May 1, opening times vary so check the schedule.
