About the Show

The WAH Center (Williamsburg Art and Historical Center) is pleased to announce a new exhibition,Pop Goes the Weasel. Curator William Norton has assembled a group of 19 artists working in seemingly disparate ways, but whose common thread is to ask the artistic question “Why not”? Why not create with joy, pathos, political intent, psychological depth and a love of materials? All of the artists in this exhibition convey a passionate vision and collectively capture the breadth of their artistic power. Bringing together artists from Japan and the US, Norton creates an exhibition that examines the joyful diversity of art making. The Opening Reception includes performances by Butoh artist Mariko Endo at 4:30pm and the band Dirty Churches (with Jesse Gelaznik, Rachel Blackwell and dancer Alexandra Jacob) at 5pm.
