Spring Break Art Show by Daniella Trask

Big Thanks to curator Krista Saunders Scenna for putting together a great show at the Spring Break Art Show. Spring Break is an up-and-coming satellite art fair that takes place in an old post office building near Penn Station during Armory Week. Her curated show, "A Storied Collective," included some of Ian's Strange Histories slide viewers, as well as his spores and piano piece collages. A review of Spring Break on the Hyperallergic art blog praised Krista's show and mentioned Ian's "witty slide mashups." You can read that review here. In another review of Spring/Break on the travel/culture blog My Fave Places, Ian's "awesome" viewers were put on their "Wish List"!

Watch Krista introducing Ian's work at Spring Break:

All Over the Map at Gowanus Open Studios by Daniella Trask

Brooklyn's Gowanus neighborhood, best known for it's stinky, super-fund site of a canal, is becoming more known for supporting a vibrant art scene. This year's Gowanus Open Studios will be bigger than ever.

If you're up for exploring the neighborhood, you can find Ian's work at two places. His new interactive cardboard sculpture, "The Sisyphus Experiment" will be rolling amongst the crowd at Gowanus Ballroom during the Honk festival concert.  And a collection of his other wall hung textiles and piano piece sculptures will be included in a two-artist show curated by Fiercely Curious at the brand new Threes Brewing, 

You can try to catch Ian at the concert on Friday night and the open studios closing reception at Threes Brewing on Sunday.

"Fabric of the Cosmos II" Wins Honorable Mention by Daniella Trask

Ian's most recent elastic textile installation "Fabric of the Cosmos II" won the Honorable Mention Award in the juried exhibition "Color" at the Brooklyn Waterfront Artist Coalition. Whether or not those multi-colored elastic belts from the Invisible Dog basement ever made a splash in the fashion industry, they've certainly found new life and appreciation in Ian's hands.
