I'm dwarfed by the paintings in "It's All Good (Apocalypse Now)," a huge group show @ Sideshow (image by Joanne Mattera)Hrag Vartanian writes in Hyperallergic that the show has been held every year since 1996. "What makes the show so unique is the surprising juxtaposition of famous artists (Michael Goldberg, Bill Jensen, Judy Pfaff, Larry Poons …) with lesser known talents and even some complete unknowns. Organizer Richard Timperio says there is no unifying theme to the shows, but he likes the playful titles and wants to keep it as open as possible." If you go, plan to spend some time--there's a lot to look at.
"It's All Good (Apocalypse Now)," Sideshow Gallery, Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Through February 20, 2011.
