James Kalm has, over the last twenty years, established himself as one of the most knowledgeable and consistent commentators on the Brooklyn art scene in the world. It was through his video project The James Kalm Report that he first came across the work of Chris Martin. Previous James Kalm videos share his studio visits and long discussions with painter Chris Martin. This exhibition, the artist’s first with Anton Kern, presents recent works, many completed over the summer. Color is pitched to an almost harsh level, and various materials, like tin foil and glitter, are employed to challenge the viewer’s accepted notions of “good taste” and beauty. The musical introduction is provided by Peter Lewy and Frank Tedesso and was recorded spontaneously under the Arch at Washington Square Park.
