03.20.13: Shadow Pests


Shadow Pests
New works by Suzy Coady and Yusuke Okada

+ View photos from this exhibition

Wednesday March 20th, 2013, 7:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Private location. By invitation only + limited RSVP
Please RSVP to

With the pairing of Suzy Coady and Yusuke Okada, viewers will meet a cast of playful, sometimes awkward and occasionally crass characters who, like those found in the early adult-themed drawings of Shel Silverstein, deal with sex, love, and life with a childlike humor and playfulness.

Coady has been featured in publications such as Apenest, The Drama, and recently contributed to Rookie Yearbook One, published by Drawn and Quarterly. For this show, she will be presenting a large-format collage / installation in Club Sandwich. Okada recently partook in the Baby Harvester (a Babycastles / Slice Harvester collaboration) installation at Clocktower Gallery, and had some super fun works up at Jimmy’s Diner. He’ll be showing a series of works in our Living Gallery.

PACS will provide limited complimentary beverages & snacks; BYOB encouraged.

Please visit the artists’ spots online, too:

Presentation Party Night
Presented by PACS Gallery
Sunday Sept 16th 2012, 7:30 PM, PACS Gallery, 21+, Free

Presentations From:
Shannon Coffey - Mystery
Ryder Ripps - How to Design an e-Commerce Website
Erik Bergstrom - The French
Melissa J Frost Architecture Out of Order

Presentation Party Night is a monthly lecture series combining a love of community and education with a taste for beer. Based in Bushwick, Brooklyn, they meet on the 3rd Sunday of each month to share and discuss various topics spanning history, pop culture, current events, and the utterly indescribable. Aesthetically, PPN is a bit closer to a DIY loft party than it is say, Ignite or TED talks. Presenters range from local pro’s to first-timers and there’s a healthy mix of laughing, factoids, and open-ended Q&A. Limited complimentary beers from our good friends at Asahi.

+ Photos of the show

Christine is a character based in New York City. She sets up situations that invite viewers to contemplate, interrogate and/or negotiate various ways in which art and finance function within a political economy. For better or for worse, her work focuses its attention on auctions, examining artworks, antiques and precious jewels i.e., as objects of financial speculation. She also is frequently concerned with the phenomena of “the contemporary” as an ambiguously defined idea in modern art, i.e., periodization of the present. Christine is frequent collaborator with artist Sean Micka.

E.E. Ikeler: KISS/KIZZ
Presented by PACS Gallery
Tuesday September 18th 2012, 7:00 PM - 12:00 AM, PACS (Floor 2), 21+, Free

+ Photos from the show

Drawing on the history of abstraction within Western Modernism, Brooklyn-based artist E.E. Ikeler’s work, as exemplified with KISS/KIZZ, inserts feminist and queer content through nontraditional materials while maintaining a level abstraction. It’s a task that the artist feels has often been assumed to lack legibility in mainstream art criticism. In response, various experimental strategies assert that form and content are not discrete characteristics of art works, but rather, like our minds and bodies, are one in the same.

+ Here are some photos from this show

Artists come to own work by other artists in a myriad of ways. Sometimes it’s bought, often it’s in trade, as payment for general labor, and here and there it’s rescued from a trash can. Sometimes it’s a piece that’s been long-desired, other times a bit of a white elephant. Since we’re all struggling for space to store all this stuff, not all works “make the cut” as they say, when artists move between studios and dwellings. But for this one-night exhibition, 10 artists reach into our personal collections and display works that have made the cut. Works we love, that influence our practice and decorate our homes. Curated by Ben Sisto (PACS) and Denise Kupferschmidt (Apartment Show). Participating artists list TBA.

Man Forever: Video is Done!

Our buddy Sto of Cinders Gallery was here recently, painting away. PACS hosted a music video shoot for Man Forever, who recently signed to Thrill Jockey. MF is the brainchild of John Kid Millions Collpits, who’s best known as the drummer for Brooklyn’s own Oneida. The live lineup is always in a state of flux, but members of Vampire Weekend, Blues, Yo La Tango, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and more have stopped in on previous engagements. Here’s some photos from the shoot, and you can see the video / read more via Impose TV.

What is authentic? How do we experience a thing? What is thingness versus thinghood?Can a thing be in itself? What makes one a radical? How do you define yourself as a radical? Can we place ourselves in the role of the other? Is there an other? What is necessary and what is enough? Is there enough? Is there a difference between transcendent and pedestrian? Is there a crisis? Are there infinite Earths? Who is your service provider? Is this relatable?

Phillip Birch lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. He has exhibited at Cleopatra’s, Clifton Benevento, Artists Space, Envoy and Apartment Show. He is currently attempting to learn to juggle. He has been attempting this for years now.
