Adam Green is set to stage his first art show in New York.
The former The Moldy Peaches man will stage Teen Tech at the city’s Morrison Hotel Gallery – formerly CBGBs – between April 22-24.
The exhibition will feature 12 sculptures, 19 drawings, 18 large paintings and 20 collages by Green with a portions of the sales going to charity Artists For Peace And Justice, which was recently backed by the likes of The Strokes and Vampire Weekend, in an arts and crafts fundraiser for Haiti organized by Little Joy’s Binki Shapiro.
“Teen Tech is an art show I’ve prepared over the last year-and-a-half. Perhaps because I’m an entertainer in showbiz, I found myself trying to make this art show more entertaining than average,” declared Green of the show.
He added: “It focuses on cartoon subjects. I don’t often read comics but I’ve always liked to draw cartoons. I contend that all artists work in caricature. The pieces in Teen Tech are caricatures of cartoons, which I feel distill the subjects down to their bare essence.”
The art show coincides with two hometown shows at the city’s Bowery Ballroom on April 23 and 24.
