In Chelsea, Jeff Bailey Gallery had a great Johannes De Young video that featured a creepy claymation talking head spouting self help affirmations in a English-accented, computer voice. Surrounded by waxy, green plant leaves, he repeats phrases like "I can control my thoughts."
When I received a last-minute invitation to attend an intimate discussion with Dave Matthews and Beezy Bailey on their new collaborative exhibition at the Robert Miller Gallery, instead of sending in a RSVP, I responded, "You had me at Dave Matthews."
At No. 8 on Monday night, artist Beezy Bailey talked about how he convinced musician Dave Matthews to collaborate with him on their latest project, now (until April 13) on display at Chelsea's Robert Miller Gallery.
