“Dead and Gong” at Stairwell
From my review of “Dead and Gong,” on view at Stairwell Gallery in Providence:
“Dead and Gong” is a hodgepodge installation that feels a bit like a teen’s bedroom, the treasure horde of some ancient Latin American crypt, and a squatter’s camp in the woods.Read the rest here.
It’s the collective generous, joyful mess of Muffy Brandt and Ali Dennig of Providence, Ryan Riehle and Keith Waters of Boston, and Miles Huston of New York, who all played with the band Dreamhouse at one time or another. And it feels right on.
“Dead and Gong,” Stairwell Gallery, 504 Broadway, Providence, Aug. 5 to Sept. 4, 2008.
