We recently stopped by Muriel Guépin Gallery to check out Be Good for Goodness Sake. Featuring new works by Nathan Vincent, Iviva Olenick, and Kathy Halper, the exhibition questions our involvement with social media, online oversharing, and the blur between real life and Facebook. While Olenick and Halper successfully critiques social media, Vincent’s Be Good for Goodness Sake is perhaps the most poignant piece in the exhibition. The large scale work includes a doily that reads ‘Be Good for Goodness Sake’ flanked by security cameras; and in front of the doily sits an inviting bench on an artificial lawn. It is a proverbial Venus fly trap–a metaphor for our overindulgence.
Be Good for Goodness Sake will be on displayed until January 19th. In the meantime, check out some snapshots from our Editor in Chief, Akeem K. Duncan.
Quiet Lunch is a grassroot online publication that seeks to promote various aspects of life and culture with a loving, but brute, educational tinge. When we say, “Creative Sustenance Daily,” we mean it.
