Nude Not Naked - The opening night

4 likes

Hello People

Our pop up show Nude Not Naked opened on Friday the 17th of April at Hawkeye Crates Art Space, Brooklyn, NY. We were still installing the work right up until the final minute of opening at 6pm on the Friday as we had a few issues with the delivery of some of the pieces which really put us up against it. We managed to keep our cool under the pressure and the space really looked fantastic as the show opened for visitors. 

We had an amazing turn out for the opening night, with lots of people through the door over the 3 hours we were open to the public. There was a great buzz about the place and with loads of interesting people coming to see the work, we got some really positive feedback and hopefully some good contacts for the future. We even had a friendly Brooklyn bike gang, The Crazy Motherfuckers pop by, which was surreal (pics below)

All three of us want to say thank you for the support during the run of the show, thank you to all those who made the trip and to those who pledged and were able to see the show in person. We had a really amazing time working on the project and we want to thank all those who couldn't make it but made it possible through contributions. It has been a really amazing project and we are all very inspired by the experience and excited to see where this new body of work will take us in the future. 

We still have the final images of the works to post on here, they should be ready in the next few days. The video we have had produced should be ready very soon and will be posted asap. In the mean time please enjoy the photos of the opening night.

Hello backers! 

We arrived in the in NYC last week and have been readying ourselves for the big night. We are  wondering the city by day in search of inspiration and installing work in the evenings at Hawkeye crates workshop. Things are really beginning to take shape! Our film maker arrived yesterday and has began the process of documenting the exhibition progress. 

Nude Not Naked screenprint update

The posters have all been packed and they are being shipped out today so they should be arriving very soon. We had an issue with the packaging tubes sizing which slowed things down a little. Many thanks for your patience with this. 

Picasso nude? Nope, it's an early Henry Moore sketch, found in a lovely Chinese book Sweeney just gifted to Wheater!

Hi everyone.

We have all been really busy working on the project and logistic of getting this show to NYC over the last month. There is so much to do its been difficult to get time to give you updates as often as we would like, so thank you for your patience. 

We are now in a position to start posting the artworks out to everyone. All the postcards are now packed and will be shipped tomorrow. The A2 posters are all printed and we are just waiting for the packaging so we can get them out to you asap.

 Those who pledged for the original artwork, we will be in touch with you individually to organise the delivery of your piece. These are custom works and may take a little longer to ship than other rewards. 

The project itself is moving along nicely, we have our flights booked and our accommodation sorted and the worked is going to be shipped out at the start of April. We also have a filmmaker working with us to capture the exhibition in all its glory. 

Stay tuned for more updates

Peace and dreams

Singleton, Sweeney, Wheater
