Last week we headed to The Project gallery for the opening of Ari Marcopoulos' Fear God exhibit. Fear God consists of five black and white paper prints and one lo-fi video of Marcopoulos' teenage sons lip-synching to 2pac's "When We Ride," (including a brief cameo from Marcopoulos himself). The exhibit as a whole is tranquil, from the muted colors in the photographs, to the white wall space of the gallery. The gentle bursts of video color gave off a glowing youthfulness that was complimented by the attendees, who primarily wore muted colors with subtle print flashes. Serendipitous.
