On Friday the Shin Gallery on the Lower East Side held a gallery opening called "I Wanna Be Me". The paintings by Balthus, Dali, and Hyon Gyon were hung in a constructed Punk Rock Bathroom. Each artist has a certain rejection of societal, cultural, and artistic norms as does Punk Rock. The juxtaposition between fine art, graffiti art, and a restroom was inspired.
It was fun to be in such a unique gallery space. The Shin Gallery puts on some very unique shows, and represents some amazing Korean Artists.
