Alex Gingrow, All the money Is in the label @ Mike Weiss Gallery

Paintings of gallery business cards with short acidic jokes at the art world’s expense. This could easily be my favorite thing ever. Maybe it’s that I choose to invest lots of my free time writing about art, and maybe I am the target audience for this kind of thing, but it is hard to deny that Gingrow is pretty damn funny and making art that so aggressively mocks the art world is either brave or overly calculated. Either way, it got some audible laughter out of me at the opening. So I am just going to let the work speak for itself.

Through Sept. 1st
