Art + acts of friendship with Margaret Haines + company in the The malignancy of stupidity: the cutest evil…, May 12 – Jun 17

, 11 May 2017

Two exhibitions, both called The malignancy of Stupidity: the cutest evil (la coscienza sporca), le perroquet…Yesterday sounded too sentimental…once more: repression/negation/vulnerability… BOTH SHOWS SHOULD HAVE THE SAME TITLES… I like your note about friendship., are on at Paris’ Lily Robert, opening May 11 and running to June 17.

One show is by Margaret Haines and the other a group exhibition featuring Dan Bodan, Jesse Darling, Cédric Fargues, Romain Hamard, Kareem Lotfy, Sands Murray Wassink, Anna Maria Pinaka, Fabio Santacroce, Skki, Ilya Smirnov, Anna Solal + Geo Wyeth.

The press release features a creative text with a copy-paste aesthetic that ruminates on art and friendship, gender and intersubjectivity, with cross-textual quotes from some of the artists involved: “but you loved me most. don’t lie. you tell your friends.”
