SMALL BLACK

The cover of Brooklyn-based Small Black's second LP, Limits of Desire, features a photo of a man and a woman embracing on either side of a ladder, completely naked, divided by its triangular arc. They're close, but they can't get any closer. It's a moving depiction of connectivity and interaction in the 21st century and it serves as a sort of source code for the record.

Small Black Announce LIMITS OF DESIRE Art Show

Small Black are all set to host an art show exploring the themes of their new album, Limits of Desire. As a collaborative event, the show will feature work by 17 artists (full list found below), working in various media. The band paired with Lindsay Aveilhe, an Independent Curator and the Research Associate for the Sol LeWitt Wall Drawings Catalogue Raisonnée, to curate the show.

“Inspired by the title track, the exhibition gathers artists whose work confronts or responds to the arbitrary framework of wants or desires upon which we exist, as well as the ways in which that framework can be restricting. For these artists, the limits of desire are manifest in their artistic process, in their relationship with materials and in their treatment of content.” – Lindsay Aveilhe

LIMITS OF DESIRE will take place at Dunham Gallery with an opening reception held Friday, May 10 from 7:00 – 10:00pm. Small Black plan to DJ the after-party from 10-11pm. Join the Facebook event for additional details. See you there.
