Riding a wave of passionate reviews following the April 2018 release of his sophomore album YOU FUCKEN SUCKER, Paul de Jong invites you into his musical diner where everybody gets an earful: a menu of emotional acrobatics with the aid of cellos, or what used to be cellos, a bottomless library of exotic americana, absurdist sound and video snippets, a few mismatched costumes and hats, fake teeth and moustaches, all purposefully over-formalized, under-rehearsed, and at times, just right.
In conjunction with his window installation, Bohemian Showroom, Oregon-based artist Noah Breuer will give an artist talk and lead a participatory rubbing workshop in Pickwick Independent Press on Wednesday, June 20th during their monthy members event.
In Bohemian Showroom, Noah Breuer presents an installation that explores the visual legacy of Carl Breuer and Sons (CB&S), his Jewish family’s former textile printing business in Bohemia, present-day Czech Republic. In 1939, the CB&S company was lost as a result of a forced sale to Nazi Party members. Some of the Breuer family fled Europe, and those who remained were killed.
