Along with Kristin Baker’s exhibit last December, Rosson Crow’s Bowery Boys was easily the best thing to grace the walls of Deitch’s main space during the gallery’s final season, and certainly their best of 2010 – and no, I have not forgotten about Shep or Kehinde’s shows – actually, maybe I have. Painted fast and free, the loose dripping paint of the Bowery Boys series captured and celebrated the history, creativity and renegade debauchery of several decades of the downtown New York scene, in a show that should have been Deitch’s last.
Whether you missed it when it happened, or saw it when it did, you should go buy Crow’s latest publication from the OHWOW imprint. 56 pages, hard-cover, with an essay by former Deitch director Kathy Grayson, who we expect and are eager to see working with Crow in the future. Get it here
