I wish I could see this show in Chicago at Packer-Schopf Gallery. I love Kathy Halper's work and was delighted to have exhibited her as part of the exhibit Play here in Brooklyn.
The press release states this :
Halper's series of embroidered drawings explore teenagers in their private world. The world now available to all online. The images in this series began as Facebook photos of teens engaged in typical yet sometimes disturbing explorations of sex, alcohol, drugs and celebration. She then randomly paired them with comments found on various networking sites. It is this duality of the past and present, innocence and loss of innocence, privacy and the demise of privacy that fascinates and drives Halper to continue exploring this subject.
You can see all the work here.
And their will be a 2nd reception this Sunday:
November 20 · 2:00pm - 5:00pm
