My Petite Bourgeois Revolution at Northern Contemporary Gallery

A tongue-in-cheek Revolution for those suffering from first world problems, My Petite Bourgeois Revolution isn’t about starvation, cake eating and guillotines. It’s about the lack of WiFi, overpriced coffee and overloaded transit. It’s an urbane revolution for the comfortable bourgeois elite, the art student sophisticate, and the bored bohemian who can’t get cable.

Poking fun at the problems or examining the minutia of every day life while simultaneously revealing that we actually have it pretty good compared to a 1920’s Ukrainian Kulak, My Petite Bourgeois Revolution is a cutting, acerbic and fun exploration of our daily lives.

The show runs May 18th – June 5th at Northern Contemporary​. Details here.

Shan Hai Jing Dialogue. An exhibition by Fiona Smyth, Holly Lee, Erik Jerezano

Shan Hai Jing, literally translated as Collection of Mountains and Seas, is an ancient text on geography and mythology in China.

This exhibition was initiated by Holly Lee, who first started her series of photographs titled Shan Hai Jing in 2010. Inspired by the work of Fiona and Erik, Holly found many similarities in the mythology of their work, so she suggested that together they adopt Shan Hai Jing as a theme to create a body of new work to be shown together.
