Jamie Warren: One Sweet Day
The Hole is proud to announce our third solo exhibition by interdisciplinary artist Jaimie Warren. While past exhibitions have featured photography and video, this show will also include one gallery room completely transformed by installation. The show comprises five major video works by the artist over the past three years.
Our front gallery will feature four video projects and the rear an elaborate and expanded fifth video and installation. These works comprise the bulk of the artist’s output since 2014 and were made during residencies across America in collaboration with youth and community groups. The first piece is a mash-up of George Harrison’s music video for “Set On You” and a Sesame Street episode about ancient Egypt, and was created at the Abrons Art Center in New York. “I Just Called to Say I Love You: Self-Portrait as Stevie Wonder in re-creation of Primavera by Sandro Botticelli (1482)” which features the Botticelli forest coming to life with Stevie Wonder and assorted scary creatures was made in Raleigh, NC at Artspace. The center wall displays a piece she made at American Medium in Brooklyn where a Medieval altarpiece painting erupts with Freddie Mercury, Saints and relics. Lastly, on the largest wall, Warren presents a mega-work with scores of costumed participants and herself as Michael Jackson in the Helmuth Projects residency from San Diego, CA.
