"Speed Dating" is an interactive sculpture show curated from a month-long open call process by BombPop!Up and Calli Moore, of See You Next Thursday Art Auction.  The show encapsulates the absurdity, newness, and excitement of speed dating in relation to digital experiences of sharing and curating artworks through the format of the open call.  As in a speed (or online) date, the works (and the audience) will meet a the same time and place for the first time during the exhibition, creating a live-action sense of aesthetic chemistry. "Speed Dating" addresses these themes with a sense of humor, while underscoring the extent to which digital processes have come to affect our material realities in art, as in life.  This sculpture show is held at Pete's Candy Store, 709 Lorimer St, Brooklyn, New York, and lasts from 6-10pm.

Chasing all that glitters in magazines such as Vogue, Glamour, and InStyle became my escape. I would rip through each one every month, page by page ranking the numerous purses, shoes, and blouses I wanted most. Eventually, I stashed a heart-shaped box under my bed, stuffed it with extra cash, and labelled it “Louboutin Fund.”Fashion magazines made me want to appear more interesting and important than I thought I was. It took me a while to realize how toxic these thoughts are and how insidious the programming is to worship luxury lifestyles.

My work investigates the relationship between popular culture and repetition. How do patterns shape media? Why do luxury goods create expectations of grandeur in daily life?
