East Village performer and godmother of modern-day shock art Kembra Pfahler has new studio space on Sixth Street.
She has been holding a few studio visits in the space that she shares with several other artists. It's an opportunity to hang out... as well as pick up some merch and a selection of artwork from her band that she co-founded with Samoa Moriki, The Voluptuous Horror of Karen Black.

From the catalog:
Pfahler is a key figure of New York’s underground scene. With a practice spanning music, performance, acting, film and visual arts since the 1980s, the image vocabulary she has built informs the countercultural aesthetics of the Lower East Side.
