A few readers asked about this awning that arrived yesterday outside Amanita, the gallery that debuted last fall at 313 Bowery. 

The question: Is this some kind of statement about John Varvatos next door? (CBGB until 2006.)


The piece is titled: 

Spray paint on custom awning 
72 x 36 x 24 in. 
182 x 91 x 60 cm 

And the awning is part of a new exhibit featuring the work of Louis Osmosis titled "Recording Artists." Here's more about the artist via the gallery
Louis Osmosis (b. 1996, Brooklyn, NY) is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily in sculpture, drawing, performance, and text. His practice revolves heavily around craft/manufacture, performative actions, and readymades, incorporating found objects and vernacular materials from popsicle sticks to graphic t-shirts, and hornet nests to violins. Equally invested in reenactment and artistic production, Osmosis's speculative approach to form reflects his ongoing "investigation into affected modes of aspiration and lack." Osmosis received his BFA from the Cooper Union in 2018. 
Tonight's opening is from 6-8. The exhibit is up through May 7.
