NEWARK — New Jersey’s image is calcified with tired cultural signifiers. It’s old hat. So it was lovely to encounter the Newark Museum’s latest exhibition, Ready or Not: 2014 New Jersey Arts Annual, a show displaying works by 40 contemporary artists based in the state.
Blue Curry does not like to intervene between the audiences experience of his artwork. His first solo exhibition in the USA opened last week at Toomer Labzda Gallery in the Lower East Side and it attracted the attention of a number of art professionals, a fashion magazine blog and curious passersby alike.
