Samoa's 'Candy Coated Evil' opens tomorrow at Howl! Happening

Via the EVG inbox...

Howl! Happening is pleased to present "Candy Coated Evil," a solo exhibition by the multifaceted Samoa, curated by artist and performer Kembra Pfahler.

The exhibition encompasses the full range of Samoa’s diverse art forms — an installation recreating his now-legendary Candy Coated Evil store, which opened in 1996 within The Pink Pony; costumes and props from his performances and music groups; and paintings that capture his deep experience of living in New York City. A major element of the artist’s show are live events — performances by Samoa and Kembra Pfahler, as well as a panel discussion, and an evening of video and film. The exhibition continues through Feb. 11.

The opening reception is tomorrow (Wednesday!) night starting at 6. Find more details on the exhibit as well as the dates and times of the special events here.

Howl! Happening: An Arturo Vega Project is located at 6 E. First St. between the Bowery and Second Avenue.
