Hionas Gallery is pleased to present Urban Evolution: PORTRAITS PROJECT, from photographer and street artist Burton Machen. In this exhibition, his first in New York City since 2010, Machen has selected a number of works from his bi-coastal Portraits Project (Los Angeles and New York), in which the artist posts two-tone photographs of notable personalities on walls throughout the city streets.
Inevitably each poster comes to bear the markings of various passersby, who tear, stamp, spray paint and/or affix random items to the portraits. The majority of Machen’s selected works are photographic pigment prints of the original on-site portrait, each of which assuredly looks far different now, if in fact it still exists.
Opening Reception is tonight, Thursday April 19, from 6-8 PM
