Lisa Kereszi's monograph Fun and Games will be released in September 2009 by Nazraeli Press. Titled after the name of a Jersey Shore arcade and the Ancient Roman wrestling phrase, "It's all fun and games, until someone loses an eye," the book documents the artist's self-described obsession with what is hidden behind the facades of strip clubs, haunted houses and nightclubs and other places of fantasy and entertainment. Kereszi's Governors Island work, originally commissioned by the Public Art Fund, New York, is on view weekends through October 31 at the Gallery in the Commanding Officer's House on Governors Island as well as Preview Space of the National September 11th Memorial & Museum, One Liberty Plaza, NYC. Kereszi also recently exhibited several works from her Fantasies series included in Peeps/Pistoletto at the City University of New York Graduate Center, NYC.
Please note we will have a book signing at the gallery on Thursday, October 15th, from 5 -7 PM.
Upcoming: Lecture & book signing December 8th, 2009, 7 - 8 pm, The Strand Book Store, 828 Broadway.
