"Don't Stop Object Shopping" is Michael Leavitt's solo show taht will feature classic kick replicas, one-off action figures, trading cards, wood sculptures, Obama works, and more. It opens on Saturday March 21st from 7PM until 10PM - at Fuse Gallery in NY - and runs until April 18th.
In this exhibition, Mike Leavitt signals an art market shift. The
Seattle artist accurately replicates in cardboard a nostalgic
footlocker of shoes, from ladies pumps to 1980's sneakers. Installed
like a thrift shop, the cardboard shoes will be interspersed with
Leavitt's famous action figures, trading cards, Barack Obama pieces,
woodcarvings, and other small collectibles. Leavitt will also show two
collaboration pieces with "bag painter" Chris Crites and the notorious
counter-culture ceramicist Charles Krafft.
