Ramiken Crucible is pleased to present Faggot Carnival, a solo exhibition of original works in acrylic and latex on canvas by New York based queer artist Nolan Hendrickson. Hendrickson’s Faggot Carnival takes aim at contemporary culture in urban society with an unsettlingly lascivious and deadpan hilarious point of view. While straddling a host of issues, from controversial sexual vulgarity to the gay adoption of the traditionally feminized position of the ‘inferior’, Faggot Carnival creates an ultimate cohesion in Hendrickson’s use of vivid colors and highly relevant wit. In Hendrickson’s rear view mirror, the future looks bright and funny.

ABOUT THE EVENT – Faggot Carnivalwill be on display at Ramiken Crucible from January 20thuntil February 9th. The opening party is January 21st at Ramiken Crucible from 6-9pm.

FOR COMMERCE – In addition to displayed art, the book Faggot Carnival, based on the work of Nolan Hendrickson, will be for sale at the event. Faggot Carnival was independently published at Publicide Inc, and is the first book from this series of work.

FROM MOLLY AT
SEAGULL:
The stars align in epic mythmaking formations this Thursday as Nolan Hendrickson’s solo show FAGGOT CARNIVAL opens at illustrious new Lower East Side gallery RAMIKEN CRUCIBLE. A Seagull bosom friend, Nolan painted the giant piece gracing our salon wall, and his book of drawings also titled Faggot Carnival is a favorite around the salon. Nolan creates giant latex-on-canvas paintings depicting delightful and mysterious tableaux composed of colorful dudes chilling in an evocative variety of moods, poses and arrangements, frequently jockstrap-clad. The work is fun, sexxxy, creepy and thought-provoking and the opening is guaranteed to follow suit. We at Seagull will all be there and you should be too! Press release with details below.
