Coming soon to 126 Baxter St…! #Repost @elliottjeromebrownjr with @get_repost
Okay, formally announcing my first solo show, “a simple song,” opens on Wednesday, January 9, 2019 through February 16, 2019 at @baxterstccny. Comprised of multimedia photographic and photo-sculptural works, a simple song draws influences from Billy Preston’s 1971 album, “I Wrote a Simple Song,” in which the named track describes working on a straightforward song for an intended person and having the song embellished for radio success, leaving this special gesture now stripped of its intimacy and privacy. This exhibition of work considers the act of rendering private moments and discourse with reserve.
I’ll be in New York for the majority of January, including the opening, so I hope to spend time with you at the show.
This has been a year. My life’s goal is constantly to grow in understanding, to humanize myself and others, and to give and receive warmth and affirmation. That practice will continue.
