Low Roller Fun: Tonight!!

Cheesecake: The Exhibition
Date: Monday, March 30th
Time: 6:00pm - 11:00pm
Location: Spur Tree (76 Orchard St btw Broome and Grand)
Cost: Free
The rough-edged work of emerging Brooklyn-based photographer JJ Ignotz hits the LES tonight for Cheesecake: The Exhibition. This recent cum laude photography graduate gets a little naughty while daring her viewers to look and then startles them when they do. "The images of partially-clad, provocatively-posed women are anxiety-inducing and addicting. They touch on themes of gender and rebellion, youth and adulthood, fetishism and exhibitionism–all rolled into a bizarre world of shag carpets, wood paneling, and loud wallpaper. The portfolio resembles the original pin-up, but falls short, leaving it to be most closely described as cheesecake. JJ’s portfolio consists of black and white silver gelatin prints on Forteza paper presented as single photographs as well as large scale collages. Prices range from $15 and up for limited edition prints."
The Cheesecake exhibition at Spur Tree is another Salon Ciel art experiment in an alternative venue. Salon Ciel is an exclusive, monthly exhibition series designed to promote and showcase the work of cutting edge, emerging photographers and visual artists. Salon Ciel is produced by David Rheingold and Andrew Stromberg, in conjunction with the organization’s Director of Operations and Curator, Lyndsey Beutin.
