Amy Smith-Stewart is pleased to announce the opening of SMITH-STEWART. The inaugural exhibition is “FOAM OF THE DAZE,” a group show featuring new work by nine artists.
The exhibition takes its title from Boris Vian’s cult classic “L’Ecume des Jours,” published in France in 1946. “Foam of the Daze” is a surrealistic love story about pretty people and fabulous parties that ends tragically, with a high body count, including a girl who chokes to death on a water lily growing in her lung. Inspired by the book, the show explores the destructive force of glamour, its pleasures and its perils, with works ranging from the figurative to the dreamily abstract.
Amy Smith-Stewart, a former Curator at P.S.1/MoMA (2001-2005) and Curatorial Advisor for Mary Boone (2006), founded SMITH-STEWART. Presently, she serves as a faculty member in the MFA Department at the School of Visual Arts and as a Guest Curator for the Peter Norton Collection.
SMITH-STEWART is located on 53 Stanton Street, between Forsyth and Eldridge Streets. Gallery Hours are Wednesday through Saturday from noon to six. The nearest subway stops are 2nd Avenue/Houston Street on the F and V lines, Grand Street on the B and D lines and Bleecker Street on the 6 line.
