The Last Supper

Here are a few snaps from The Last Supper, the art show I was in last weekend in Brooklyn! There were so many amazing works on display—I took pictures of a few, but you can check them all out in more depth online here.

Housing projects made out of graham crackers, complete with boarded-up windows, chimneys, and fences—how great are these??

    Nice job, Jacob, with the pictures. I think Lagusta and you put together a site that better showcases the event than the site put together by the hosts. Good job on the work itself, Lagusta. Was the poem eaten at or after the event?

    Thanks Randy! I’ll pass on the compliments. The poem was supposed to be eaten at the event, but I didn’t want it to disappear too fast, so it was eaten afterward. But actually we left sort of early (you know–driving home…actually, we went to Kajitsu afterward!), so if people started eating it early I’m not really sure.

      I MADE THE DRESS!!!!! OK, actually, I bought it in Hudson at $5 at some insanely weird store (…I’ll try to remember the name for you…it was basically a junk shop with some clothes crammed in off to one side) and it was a giant sack dress and I spent like 10 hours making it fit me—I EVEN MADE A BELT THAT MATCHES! (I am really proud of it).

        No way! That is impressive, you should be proud!
        Was the store called John Doe/John Deaux/Antwax?

    Your artist statement is so rad–just due to its straightforwardness and lack of pretension. You are always such a breath of fresh air.

      (blushes)!!! Thanks–I was totally paranoid it was overly earnest and not, uh, arty enough.
