The Montauk Beach House is back with a new aesthetic, hosting another eccentric art exhibit, “New York Eye & Ear Control,” which launched July 29 and runs until August 9. Curated by Boo-Hooray founder Johan Kugelberg, the group show of artists active in New York City are showcased, bringing a city-take to the beach culture.
“We figured that New York art should get some beach time alongside all the city people out east,” said Kugelberg. “This show is basically Boo-Hooray showcasing our friends, people we admire, bringing the vibe of Boo-Hooray out to Montauk for a spin.”
Kugelberg founded Boo-Hooray in 2010 to formalize the archival work he had started years earlier as a collector and enthusiast. He has created comprehensive collections in the fields of punk, hip hop, and counter-culture, focusing on printed works, ephemera, photography, and book arts.
Featured artists in “New York Eye & Ear Control” include: Lizzi Bougatsos, Brian DeGraw, Danielle McGurran, Jeanette Hayes, Erik Foss, Sofia Leilani, Justin Lowe and Jonah Freeman, Jane Dickson, Doug Miller, Ed Wolfe, Matt Satz, Sophie Thunder-Murphy, Ben Morea, Aurel Schmidt, Fab Five Freddy, Charlie Ahearn, Ryan McGinley, Dalton Portella, Spencer Sweeney, Manon Macasaet, Jeffrey Dalessandro, William Strobeck, Ben Papaleo, Jack Smith, Amy Sillman, Charles Henri Ford, Andy Warhol, David Wojnarowicz, Lawrence Weiner, Larry Clark, Keith Haring, Martin Kippenberger, Dieter Roth and Asger Jorn.
The Montauk Beach House is at 55 South Elmwood Avenue, Montauk. For details, visit thembh.com.
