Peek at our September Show Artist
James Weingrod in DuJour Magazine
Coming in September an artist and his universe!
James Weingrod is planning his installation for NAPOLEON as I type this, but accolades about his most recent solo show in New York keep pouring in. This in as a little teaser for what’s to come!
From DuJour Magazine, Natasha Wolff writes, “New York-based artist James Weingrod has taken on the biggest themes of them all: infinity and the universe.” In the piece, Wolff interviews Weingrod about his latest show, Hush, and the article reads like a Q&A. For example:
Tell us about this work. For starters, why is it called Hush?
It’s a name I got after re-reading Goodnight Moon, one of my childhood favorites. The book resonates with me when I think back to my childhood. I was a little insomniac, and my father attempted to remedy that by reading me his books about the universe and evolution in hopes they’d bore me to sleep. Instead, I’d ask a million “why?” questions. Usually, this ended with my mother coming in, [and] in the end, the only thing that worked was the two of them telling me to “Hush” and to wonder myself to sleep.
You’ve got to read the entire thing. The interview brings to light the kind of artist James is: contemplative, conceptual, and consumed! We look forward to seeing what James does in our space.
