Switchback Sea Project Drops Anchor in Long Island City


Swoon’s remarkable floating sculptures, which were well worth the wait, arrived to a welcoming band and packed pier at Deitch Studios on Sunday. An irreverent crew member named Stephen stumbled onto the platform and jokingly balked, “What’s all this?”




“It’s Soup!”

The exhibition also had a piece featuring Soup, friend and subject throughout photographs by Tod Seelie and The Polaroid Kidd.

One of my favorite photogs is having his first solo opening tonight at the Cinders Gallery in Williamsburg. He documented possibly the most innovative arts & crafts movement of modern day Lost Boys & Girls: last year, a group of artists from every nook & cranny around the country got together to assemble a raft made out of garbage & scraps. The raft made its way down the Mississippi and the project was dubbed The Miss Rockaway Armada.

Tod Seelie (a k a Suckapants) was there to capture it all.
