Support Hyperallergic’s independent arts journalism.
Join us Friday, May 14 at 8pm for a special talk by Brooklyn artist William Powhida on “Surviving the Art World Using the Art of Sorcery.”
Described as a “gadfly in the art establishment” by the New York Times, “an irresistible double-dipper and ingenious double-crosser” by the Los Angeles Times and a “stupid twerp” by the editor of Artnet Online Magazine, Powhida is a mercurial personality who has been investigating new ways to survive the volatile and Janus-faced art world. His latest path of query has led him to the dark art of sorcery.
His talk at Hyperallergic HQ promises to reveal some of the inner-workings of his mind and we’re all excited (and scared) to see what he has in store for us.
Space is very limited (25 tickets) SOLD OUT. Please RSVP place your name on the waiting list here.
NOTE: Powhida has just added a post to his blog about the event. It includes an image of one of his new talisman works.
