New York’s Old Room will be hosting a group exhibition titled Is it much too much to ask, not to hide behind the mask at their West Village space from September 13 to 28.
The group show is curated by Gregor Quack as well as Elisa R. Linn and Lennart Wolff of Berlin’s km temporaer and titled (maybe) after a lyric from 1968 The Nova Local song ‘If You Only Had the Time’ -otherwise its sampling on the the Danger Mouse and MF Doom collab track ‘The Mask‘.
Work by 10 contemporary artists, including Darja Bajagić, Hanne Lippard, Olaf Breuning and Debo Eilers, will feature as well as a performance by contributing artist Liz Magic Laser and a reading by fellow contributor Heather Guertin at the official opening. Is it much too much to ask… will also bring an evening performance on September 20 by an Hayley Aviva Silverman, another artist featured in the show.
