Almost immediately after artist David Choe completed his giant mural on New York City’s famed Bowery wall (located at the corner of Houston Street and Bowery), the artwork was defaced.
Goldman Global Arts, curators of the Bowery wall, made a very controversial decision to select David Choe for the wall despite his bragging about predatory sexual behaviour on his own podcast a few years ago (if you’re unaware: further reading). Last week Hyperallergic wrote about the Bowery mural and its part in the normalisation of rape culture.
Tel Aviv-born, Los Angeles-based artist Elad Lassry’s first major exhibition in Canada opens at the Vancouver Art Gallery on June 24th. The show features 70+ works — films, photographs, and sculpture — produced by Lassry over the last decade. Have a look at some more images of the work below.
