K2 – The Blog

Three Openings, One Weekend

Posted in What's happening with the artists by K2Creative on April 11, 2012

It’s a busy week at K2, but we’re not complaining.  We’ve been bidding and bidding, and our guys have been shooting and shooting.  I can’t imagine where they’ve found the spare time to work on personal projects, but somehow, they’ve amazed us again. Now it’s time for us to work some magic – we need to be in 3 places at once.

We’ve got three-that’s right, THREE photographers with gallery events and launches this weekend.  So, not only have they been uber creative in their down time, but the dang work is so good that it’s been recognized by others.  NY, Mississippi, and Toronto – get your asses to one of these events this weekend.

4/13, MISSISSIPPI

LOU BOPP’S “WE JUKE UP IN HERE” PREMIER AND PARTY

Click here for more details.

“We Juke Up In Here” follows music producers Roger Stolle and Jeff Konkel as they explore what remains of Mississippi’s once-thriving juke joint culture. The film is told largely from the vantage point of Red Paden, proprietor of the legendary Red’s Lounge in historic Clarksdale, Mississippi. Paden, a true Delta character and jack-of-all-trades, has been running his blues and beer joint for more than 30 years – providing one of the region’s most reliable live blues venues and an authentic stage for a cavalcade of veteran blues performers, both legendary and obscure. Featured artists include Terry “Harmonica” Bean, Big George Brock, Hezekiah Early, Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, Anthony “Big A” Sherrod, Robert Lee “Lil’ Poochie” Watson, Elmo Williams and Louis “Gearshifter” Youngblood.

Reception at 5:30 PM, Screening at 7:00 PM

Two People Walking a Tightrope in an Ordinary Life Full of Extraordinary Moments (or Two People…, for us lazies) is inspired by choreographed dance, and investigates the nature of emotional expression and gesture within a relationship.

4/14, NEW YORK

SETH KUSHNER’S “LEAPING TALL BUILDINGS” EXHIBIT & BOOK LAUNCH

Click here for more details.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Some are mild mannered geeks, others mad geniuses or street-smart city dwellers driven to action. These are the men and women behind the masks and tights of America’s most beloved superheroes. But these aren’t the stories of the heroes’ hidden alter egos or secret identities…these are the stories of their creators! Leaping Tall Buildings: The Origins of American Comics gives you the truth about the history of the American comic book—straight from the revolutionary artists and writers behind them. Leaping Tall Buildings assembles writer Christopher Irving’s interview-based essays and photographer Seth Kushner’s portraits of comic book creators into a narrative thread. The pair successfully started the project as the Graphic NYC website, www.nycgraphicnovelists.com, in December 2008.

Panel discussions start at 3:00 PM.  Reception at 6:00 PM

The Powerhouse Arena – 37 Main Street, Brooklyn, NY
