Photography // Sunday, November 23, 2014
From the playful succinctness of her photography to her sculptural achievements, visual artist Scarlett Hooft Graafland displays an aptitude for balancing composition with concept in a choreographed fashion similar to performance art.

Studies In Pessimism, Tonight and Only Tonight, In Brooklyn

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 21, 2014
Studies In Pessimism is a last minute trashy low down dirty show in an abandoned store put together by a bunch of nehr’do’wells. And it's one night only.
