Denise Kupferschmidt: 17-Foot Mural!
Past Event! View the install and mural photos here!
At the invitation of PACS Gallery, Denise Kupferschmidt has installed a permanent mural in the front room of Public Assembly. Occupying approximately 5 x 17 feet of estate above the venue’s front interior window, Kill Your Crude Idols references Kupferschmidt’s own Crude Idols drawing series, while serving as a nod to the NYC rock & no-wave documentary Kill Your Idols. The mural provides comfort and warmth to a raw, industrial garage.
The mural’s footer text was generated by the artist’s friend Ben Sisto, who did so by processing a cappella versions of popular songs with an Apple iPhone S4’s voice-to-text translator. The first line/phrase was selected from a translation of Jay-Z’s Izzo; the remainder from Wu Tang Clan’sC.R.E.A.M.
Recently named in Modern Painters’ “100 Artists to Watch”, Denise Kupferschmidt has been included in exhibitions in New York at Nicole Klagsbrun Gallery, Marvelli Gallery, Eleven Rivington, and the Horticultural Society of New York, as well as at Western Exhibitions in Chicago, and CAVE in Detroit. She has had solo exhibitions in Chicago, Boston, and New York. In 2010 she was featured as a NADA Emerging Artist in The L Magazine. Denise was co-organizer, with Joshua Smith, of “Apartment Show”, a series of roving group shows featuring artists in New York City.
