Following her trip on the Hudson, Swoon got a bit more adventurous and gathered up more than 30 other artists to help her take her Swimming Cities to the Adriatic Sea. Three handcrafted vessels navigated the waters, and ended up crashing the Venice Biennale in Italy. Luckily Tod Seelie was on hand to capture it all, and now his photographs will be on exhibit, starting tonight, at the Anonymous Gallery.
"Pankabestia: Punk Beasts of the Swimming Cities of Serenissima," is considered a retrospective of the journey and will also include large-scale wall drawings, original Swimming Cities boat installations, portions of the ships, and found objects acquired from sea. The opening reception is tonight from 6 to 9 p.m.
