“Lauren Faigeles (Younger than G-d), has visited exhibitions at museums across the globe including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, Spain; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York. Faigeles has read The New York Times cover-to-cover on more than one occasion, reads The Brooklyn Rail when a friend sends her an article that is declared a “must read!” Faigeles has used the Google search engine to look at art she is too lazy to visit in real life. She visited Venice during the 2011 Venice Biennale but was unaware at the time that it was going on. This is Lauren Faigeles’ NY solo debut exhibition.”
