Adam Green's "Teen Tech" Art Show Opens April 23rd / Headlining Shows at Bowery Ballroom on April 23 - 24

Adam Green's Art Show Opens At Morrison Hotel on April 23rd / Headlining Show at Bowery Ballroom on April 23-24Former Moldy Peaches singer/songwriter, Adam Green’s debut art show, Teen Tech, will open at the Morrison Hotel Gallery (313 Bowery / former location of CBGB Gallery) on Friday, April 24th. Teen Tech showcases another side of Green, who has had a prolific (six albums in eight years) career as a solo musician and for his work as half of the band Moldy Peaches. Last year, he composed the soundtrack for a German theatrical adaptation of Paul Auster’s novel Timbuktu, which he titled Musik For A Play. Fat Possum Records released Green’s most recent solo album, Minor Love, in February.

The exhibition will consist of original works by Green: 12 sculptures of plaster, papier-mâché, or papier-mâché and mixed materials; 18 large-scale (30” x 40”) acrylic or watercolor paintings; 19 drawings; and 20 collages (created together with model Cory Kennedy). The art will be for sale and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the charitable organization Artists for Peace and Justice, which directs 100% of all funds raised towards rebuilding and maintaining long-term sustainability in Haiti.

Green says of the exhibition, “Teen Tech is an art show I've prepared over the last year and a half. Perhaps because I'm an entertainer in showbiz, I found myself trying to make this art show more entertaining than average. It focuses on cartoon subjects. I don't often read comics but I've always liked to draw cartoons. I contend that all artists work in caricature. The pieces in Teen Tech are caricatures of cartoons, which I feel distill the subjects down to their bare essence.

Teen Tech coincides with Green’s two-night headlining stand at the Bowery Ballroom. These two shows, April 23rd and 24th, will be the final of his current U.S. tour in support of Minor Love. Green is playing with Nickel Eye and The Dead Trees on Friday night and Savoir Adore and The Dead Trees on Saturday night. Tickets for each night's show is $15 and doors are at 8PM.
