Opening Tuesday, July 2 at The Untitled Space, 6 pm to 9 pm. On view through July 13.
No, “Miss Meatface” does not refer to the latest right-wing woman to adopt the “carnivore diet,” that frightening all-beef culinary regime embraced by the likes of Jordan Peterson; it refers to the artist Kat Toronto, who creates bizarre and entrancing “performance-based photography” under the name Miss Meatface, which resemble stills from some surreal, experimental, BDSM-laced film you want to immediately consume in full. In addition to an exhibition of recent creations by Miss Meatface, Tuesday’s reception will also feature a zine signing and an artist talk between Meatface and The Untitled Space’s director, Indira Cesarine.
This Is My Son, Does He Make You Uncomfortable
Opening Wednesday, July 3 at Project Parlor, 8 pm to 11 pm.
Most art openings are in galleries, because galleries are where most art is installed for public viewing. But, not always—coffee shops often have local art hanging on their walls, and in the case of Bed-Stuy’s Project Parlor, so do bars. This Wednesday, as a July 4th pregame of sorts, you can get an eyeful of a new group show there, intriguingly titled This Is My Son, Does He Make You Uncomfortable. It features work by five artists working in photography and mixed media. Will it make you uncomfortable? Only one way to find out.
Opening Friday, July 5 at Interstate Projects, 6 pm to 9 pm. On view through July 28.
Fitting for a gallery with the name of Interstate Projects, this exhibition actually encompasses three different shows across three cities: Brooklyn, Montreal, and Baltimore. Each show is organized by a guest curator, and will be on view for four weeks. The Brooklyn exhibition, on Knickerbocker Ave, is curated by Museum Gallery and showcases the work of 11 artists delving into the uncertainty that comes with the passing of time in a world that can feel more than a little apocalyptic.
