BEN MOREA – VELOCITY
Ben Morea is a painter, publisher, and direct action political figure. As the unseen hand of the 1960s revolutionary underground, Morea is infamous for shutting down MoMA, forcibly entering the Pentagon, occupying the Fillmore East and Columbia University, and dumping the neglected garbage of the Lower East Side into the fountains of Lincoln Square. He was the force behind the 1960s art/anarchist collective Up Against the Wall Motherfucker and the legendary anarchist zine/broadside Black Mask. Ben will bring new paintings on paper to Montauk – the first he’s made since he stopped painting in the late 60s.
New York artist and Gang Gang Dance front-person Lizzi Bougatsos is bringing past and recent work to the beach, staging a show continuing her vibe on the meaning of archiving – 90s plates, Rasta Baby, the Pope chair, and a rave.
BARON VON FANCY
Gordon Stevenson, aka Baron Von Fancy, was born and raised in New York City. Stevenson began his career creating pieces that encompass a variety of mediums and styles--from oil on canvas to electroluminescent wire sculptures. In the midst of such artistic study, Stevenson developed Baron Von Fancy, who emerged as a separate identity, method and voice. Known for his wit with words and phrases, he brings forth a message of youth, humor and provocation as evidenced by his diversified show that includes the best of his two worlds.
