We guest-edited a chunk of the current issue of Paper magazine. We have a big stack to give away at the store so come and pick one up. It's the LA issue so everyone is local. Here's the list: Elliott Gould interviewed by the Safdie Bros. Ben Jones interviewed by Sammy. Kathryn Andrews by Dan Nadel and Rachel Uffner. Amy Gerstler interviewed by Trinie Dalton. Mike Kelley interviewed by Jesse Pearson. Stanya Kahn interviewed by me. Crazy Band by Nate Walton. Ed Fella by Jennifer Krasinski. And a special illustration by Brian Roettinger concerning early LA punk establishments.
Special thanks to Kim Hastreiter and David Hershkovitz!

Sarah Soquel Morhaim shot all the portraits for the section. Here's some of the out takes. For more go HERE to her site.

Misha Hollenbach's DO/NO/GO

Feb 24 - March 17
Opening Reception:
Feb 24 6-9

Family backroom gallery is proud to present DO/NO/GO, an exhibition of new work by Misha Hollenbach.

DO/NO/GO is essentially about holes: in particular donut holes, but also sacred holes, such as the 'Holy Hole' of Winchester Cathedral, a deep recess in which pilgrims could crawl to get as close as possible to the saintly bones of St Swithun. The show features painted xerox and riso prints, and silkscreens of donut forms forged from cosmic landscapes and neon color blotches. Hollenbach's Dadaist collage method mixes church iconography with found images manipulated into abstraction. Weird image associations are topped with donut sprinkles.

Hollenbach is one half of Perks and Mini (P.A.M.), an art/design/fashion/publishing team. He has exhibited at Mu Gallery (Eindhoven) V1 Gallery (Copenhagen) Alleged Gallery (New York) and Deitch Projects (New York). Last year Hollenbach created two collaborative exhibitions with Peter Sutherland in Japan: SNAP!, at Gallery Target and REAGGEAE, at Utrecht Gallery.

Here's a small sampling:
