All great things have to come to an end sooner or later. When the Christopher Henry Gallery launched Polish artist Olek’s exhibit “Knitting is For Pus***” nearly a year ago, Olek took the art world by storm – and then crocheted it! The exhibit features a studio apartment in which every object has been crocheted and it’s one of the most unique exhibits you’ll ever see. It was written up by Time Out NY, VOGUE Italy, PAPER, Village Voice, Details, M Magazine Gallery Guide, The Daily News, StylelikeU, NBC News, LX Taxi TV, NHK Japan, The Miami Herald, Complex, Juxtapoz, and countless blogs. Olek will also be featured in an upcoming issue of New York Magazine, as part of a special Interior Design issue.
Your final chance to see this exhibit in New York will be on May 27, 2011 at the Christopher Henry Gallery (located at 127 Elizabeth Street) from 6 to 9 pm. If you are like me and will be out of town for a party that is sure to be one for the record books, it will be included in a traveling museum show opening at the Smithsonian in 2012!
