You can get a serving of New York Close Up artist Jacolby Satterwhite lottsa different ways today-
#1 – Documentary-style. Our latest film on Jacolby is now live: Jacolby Satterwhite Is Going Public.
#2 – Step Up Revolution-style. Besides showing his latest animation, Reifying Desire 6, at the Whitney Biennial, Jacolby is also doing a series of regular but impromptu performances at the museum. In a new silver catsuit! Unfortunately, there’s no set schedule. But if you go to the Whitney often, hang out in the lobby, and check Jacolby’s facebook page enough, you should be able to catch a glimpse. The Biennial and Jacolby’s performances run through May 25th.
#3 – Mother and Son-style. Jacolby and his mother Patricia have created a new collaborative work for the “When the Stars Fall” group exhibition at the Studio Museum in Harlem. It’s the first time Patricia’s amazing drawings have been shown in public. That’s up through June 29.
#4 – Be More PBS-style. Somewhat improbably Jacolby, artist Zoe Leonard, and co-curators Michelle Grabner and Stuart Comer all recently appeared on the Charlie Rose show to talk about the Whitney Biennial. Yes, the Charlie Rose show. Check it here and see Charlie actually crack a smile.
