Hot art opening

This should be great tonight, but I also expect it to be a zoo. Who puts a big group show with lots of sexy people on the 10th floor of a building?!

I'm giving you the whole press release, since I can't find a link that has all of the information.

"Teenage art is not an attempt to reclaim youth
after it has passed, but an effort to expose the
dishonesty of the domesticated adult experience,
which is best served by reviving the emotional and
psychological convictions of teenage-hood."
รข?? Excerpt from Rachel Howe's Teenage Art Manifesto

K48 is proud to present their first gallery
installation, coinciding with the release of their
third issue, Teenage Rebel.

The Bedroom Show brings together over 50 artists,
fashion designers, musicians, and graphic designers
into the realm of Hug's ultimate teenage hangout.
Some of the work in the show actually belongs to
Hug: "These are my friends, this is what inspires

Scott Hug created K48 as his thesis project for the
Graduate Design Department at Pratt Institute.
Launched in December of 2000, K48, named after a
generic form of aspirin, continues Hug's interests
into information flux, allowing him to express
himself through the popular form of a magazine.
Collaborating with other artists, writers and
musicians, Scott designs, edits, and curates each
issue giving a personal touch to a medium, which in
today's corporate mediascape, only wants to sell you

"Magazines are dead," claims Hug. "K48 is like my
traveling exhibit. I want to get art into the hands
of teenagers across America".

The bedroom will feature customized wall paper by
Eli Sudbrack, a complete entertainment system
featuring The Kid America TV Show, Robert Melee's
High School Wrestling and video games; music; and a
wall collage by the Providence, RI, collective
Dearraindrop. Artists include Lily van der Stokker,
Lucky Debellevue, Jesse Bransford, Sam Gordon, Tyson
Reeder, Ryan McGinley, Slava Mogutin, Michael Meads,
Lucien Samaha, Tracy Nakayama, Mike Pare, Debbie
Attias, David West, Keila Lopez, Amy Steiner,
Timothy Dowling, Aida Ruilova, Emily Sundblad and
many others.

The Bedroom Show is an interactive experience. Scott
is inviting people to hangout with him, play some
Atari, watch some videos or just read K48.
