MAPPLETHORPE by Max Steele -
Some notes on my new show, MAPPLETHORPE May 2-4th at BAX/Brooklyn Arts Exchange. I’m really excited about this project, and I really want people to come see it! If money is the reason you’re not coming, hit me up. If you want to write about the show for a blog/newspaper/outlet, let me know as well and I’ll be happy to arrange comps.
This is the freakiest and most experimental thing I’ve ever made, and I’m excited and scared to show it to y’all.
"THEY OUT HERE PANINI"
I’m vegan; the only meat I eat is golden calf.
Secret Society of Sick -
"That’s the thing about being sick. When you’re sick, you start to notice other sick people. Then you can’t stop noticing. You’re part of a community of sick people, a secret underworld society."
If you love your friends, drag them. Call them on their shit so they can get it together. Come for their edges and then apply jamaican black castor oil to the bald spots. Read them like a Dr. Seus book. Because you care about them and caring about people means telling them they’re full of bullshit every now and then.
