If the idea of waiting in line to see the de Kooning retrospective doesn't appeal to you this holiday season, perhaps a tarty new exhibit from the Where Am I gallery will satisfy your artistic appetite.
Opening tonight on Classon Avenue in Prospect Heights, "Food Lust: Shock Candy" will take over six empty storefronts and transform them into "an artistic candyland." The premise behind the pop-up is to welcome in the holiday season with art that encourages patrons with a "look but don't eat" mentality. The show will feature Jell-O sculptures, extreme close-up dessert photography and candy-coated nether region polaroids. Yup, you read that correctly.
If the whole concept isn't inducing cringe-worthy flashbacks of your last night at The Box, head over to tonight's opening reception where the Jello Mold Mistress of Brooklyn will offer creations from her forthcoming book, "Hello, Jell-O!" and beer will be provided by BOMB Lager.
