Nate Lowman’s “A Dog From Every County” Exhibition Coverage
Greenwich Village contemporary gallery Maccarone ar eplaying hosts to Nate Lowman and his exhibition “A Dog From Every County” which we previewed here on SLAMXHYPE. “The work, a series of works on paper depicting smiley faces, is a departure for the bad boy artist, more typically known for putting bullet holes in gallery walls”. According to Lowman, he’s challenging the idea of a reflexive happy emotion, and the smiley face imagery is lifted from a letter written by celebrity/criminal O.J. Simpson: “It’s this insane compulsion, like “I’m happy! I swear!” I’m not buying it. I don’t believe them.”
