David Ellis:True Value
Joshua Liner Gallery is pleased to present True Value, an exhibition of new and recent work by David Ellis.This is the artist’s debut solo show at the gallery.With his unique blend of humor, vivid imagery, and technical invention, David Ellis channels his love for music into a variety of art genres and media, including painting, sculpture, and video installation. The artist’s kinetic sound sculpture True Value (Paint Fukette) (2011)—a large installation created in collaboration with Roberto Lange, built of discarded paint cans and buckets that beat a syncopated rhythm—was an acclaimed presentation at the recent PULSE New York art fair, winning the 2011 PULSE Prize. The artist has been critically hailed for his freestyle installations inspired by popular music and DJ culture, specifically interpreting the ways in which image, sound, materials, and technology interconnect in the contemporary cultural landscape.
Matthew Picton: “Paper Cities” Opening Reception (Christopher Henry)
The sculptures interweave the narratives of personal and public history and place them within the mapped framework of the urban form. Events both real and imagined are anchored and placed within the architectural spaces of the city site. The works suggest a paradoxical beauty, while the works attest to suffering and loss, they also present an ephemeral fragility.

Strategies for PublicOccupation
On October 7, 2011, in response to the Occupy Wall Street movement, Storefront launched a Call for Ideas entitled “Strategies for Public Occupation” which invited submissions from architects, artists and citizens at large to offer their ideas for enabling acts of communication and action between civil society and the structures of economic and political power. Gathering expertise from the various acts of civil occupation throughout the world during the last months and constrained to one image and one text of maximum 200 words, submissions ranged from the technical to the oneiric. With a prize equivalent to a New World Order , Storefront received more than 100 submissions.Hard-On My Sleeve: Absurdist-Prosthetic Cabaret
