André Saraiva’s solo show “Andrépolis” opened at The Hole in New York City last week, in the form of a miniature city installation in gallery 3. Made up of fifteen wooden, painted, and fully lighted buildings, the rear gallery is transformed into a city at night, with miniature neons lighting up the artist’s recreations of a hallucinatory vision of New York nightclubs and restaurants. His arted version of the city creates the scene for which artists and culture makers come together, while the sister show in Gallery 1 and 2 features portraits of over 100 of the artists that make up the art scene in NYC. Post-New‘s got the pictures.
