This event has ended.

Off Paradise presents NOTHNG OF THE MONTH CLUB, a group exhibition under the sign of Ray Johnson, curated by Randy Kennedy and Natacha Polaert, featuring works by Matt Connors, Scott Covert, Olivia DiVecchia, John Fahey, Robert Hawkins, Richard Hell, Ray Johnson, Karen Kilimnik, Erik LaPrade (David Hammons), Nicholas Maravell, Marlon Mullen, Peter Nadin, Richard Prince and William S. Wilson.

NOTHNG OF THE MONTH CLUB gathers a group of artists who work in Johnson’s spirit in wildly different ways, following widely divergent paths in their negotiation of the mainstream art world’s machinery — its expectations, needs, tastes and value systems. Among the artists are a multitude of refusals, denials, dropouts, disappearances, evasions, feints, infiltrations and subversions, propelled by what Richard Prince (a special case in this lineup) calls “the unnamable motors and dangerous impulses that occupy our thoughts.”

In place of a thesis statement, Lucy Lippard’s 1999 observation about Johnson could serve as a shibboleth: “… Johnson regarded the center as both attractive and repellent. The enormous energy of his art may well have derived from that tension.”
