All of the windows on Fifth Avenue are complete, filled with the designs of Cleon Peterson, Shepard Fairey, and the rest of Studio Number One.  When we first brought word of this collaboration, a slew of comments erupted on our site, and then, all over the internets.  Haters will be haters, Lovers will be Lovers, and The World’s Best Ever will always be supporters.  Nice job peeps!

BETTER HISTORY
Curated by Nick Poe & 7Eleven Gallery
March 12 – April 11, 2009
Opening Reception March 12th, 6 – 10 pm
169 10th Avenue, New York, NY 10011
Better History is a New York based, cross-generational group exhibition. Works by some of the most promising emerging artists are presented alongside examples from long established figures, unfolding landscapes of influence. Instead of being lost in the maelstrom of contemporary art, the established artists provide fertile context that is crucial to understanding & grounding the younger generation. Many of the artists featured share personal history – ties of friendship, family and business – but despite these commonalities, each artist uniquely expresses his or her experience. The show features a community whose divergent yet optimistic visions reflect the complexities of a disjointed time. Better History is a bridge, uniting New York’s past with its present, and building order in support of a strong future.

Featured artists include Tim Barber, Sebastian Bear-Mcclard, Sebastian Black, Max Bode, Scott Campbell, Eneas Capalbo, Sarah Charlesworth, Francesco Clemente, Billy Copley, Patricia Cronin, Lance De Los Reyes, India Donaldson, Lena Dunham, Judith Hudson, Fab 5 Freddy, Francesco Galetto, India Donaldson, Alex Kalman, Maira Kalman, Tibor Kalman, Mel Kendrick, Victor Kerlow, Barney Kulock, Eva Lewitt, Judith Linhares, Troy Lumpkin, Alex Massouras, Michael Mcclard, Thomas Mcdonnell, Harry Mcnally, Casey Neistat, Van Neistat, Deniz Ozuygur, Peter Passuntino, Grear Patterson, Paolo Pelosini, Nick Poe, Nico Ponce De Leon Dios, Paula Poons, Steve Powers, Alex Rickard, Alexis Rockman, Theo Rosenblum, Ed Ruscha, Tom Sachs, Benny Safdie, Josh Safdie, Kenny Scharf, Laurie Simmons, Gordon Stevenson, Billly Sullivan, Jon Waite and Robert Waltzer.
