DELUSIONAL DAYDREAM


IN THE EARLY 2000’S HEDI SLIMANE STARTED TO DOCUMENT A NEW EMERGING ART SCENE IN NEW YORK THAT INCLUDED DAN COLEN, TERENCE KOH, NATE LOWMAN AND DASH SNOW TO NAME A FEW.

IN JULY OF 2007 SLIMANE CURATED A GROUPSHOW TITLED “SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH”, AT ARNDT & PARTNER IN BERLIN, FEATURING THE WORKS OF PROMINENT DOWNTOWN NEW YORK ARTISTS DASH SNOW, SLATER BRADLEY, MATHEW CERLETTY, DAN COLEN, GARDAR EIDE EINARSSON, TERENCE KOH, DOUGLAS KOLK, NATE LOWMAN, RYAN MCGINLEY, MATT SAUNDERS, STEVEN SHEARER, PAUL P., AND BANKS VIOLETTE.

LATER ON THAT SAME YEAR, WITH HIS EXHIBITION “YOUNG AMERICAN” AT THE FOAM FOTOGRAFIEMUSEUM IN AMSTERDAM, THROUGH A SERIES OF BLACK AND WHITE PORTRAITS, SLIMANE PAID TRIBUTE TO THE SAME GENERATION OF ARTISTS.
RECALLING HIS STRONG LINKS WITH THE NEW YORK ART SCENE, HEDI SLIMANE WORKED WITH DASH SNOW’S ESTATE TO CHOOSE ARTWORKS FROM HIS ARCHIVE TO INCLUDE IN THE DELUSIONAL DAYDREAM COLLECTION

THE NEW YORK BEAT OF LCD SOUNDSYSTEM, AND ITS CULT SEMINAL 2005 EPONYMOUS ALBUM “LCD SOUNDSYSTEM” IS REVISITED TODAY BY A YOUNG AND VIBRANT, NEW YORK MUSIC SCENE, TO WHOM THIS SHOW IS DEDICATED.

HEDI SLIMANE STARTED PHOTOGRAPHING THIS REVIVED NEW YORK GENERATION AT THE END OF LOCKDOWN, NOTABLY THROUGH A SERIES OF PORTRAITS OF ALTERNATIVE MUSICIANS, ARTISTS, AND CLUBBERS.

THE EMERGENCE OF A STRONG, UTOPIAN, AND FREE ARTISTIC YOUTH, FROM THE AREA OF “DIMES SQUARE” TO THE BORDERS OF BROOKLYN, CONFIRMS THE RETURN OF THE NEW YORK SCENE.



DASH SNOW


DASH SNOW (1981-2009) WAS ACTIVE DURING A DISTINCT CHAPTER IN AMERICAN HISTORY, THE EARLY AUGHTS, AS AN ARTIST IN NEW YORK AT THE EPICENTER OF A WHOLE COUNTRY’S ANXIETY. SNOW’S WORK BEGAN TO COHERE AROUND 2003, AND IN ADDITION TO POLAROIDS, HE STARTED USING 35MM FILM AS WELL AS ASSEMBLING COLLAGE WORKS THAT MADE USE OF TYPOGRAPHICAL DEVICES.
AMBITIOUS INSTALLATIONS, COMBINE SCULPTURES, PERFORMANCES, AND SHORT FILMS FOLLOWED AND HIS CAREER WAS WELL ESTABLISHED BY THE TIME OF HIS INCLUSION IN THE 2006 WHITNEY BIENNIAL.

DASH SNOW’S ARTWORKS WERE INCLUDED IN THE “SWEET BIRD OF YOUTH” GROUPSHOW EXHIBITION CURATED BY HEDI SLIMANE AT ARNDT & PARTNER GALLERY IN BERLIN IN JUNE 2007.
