I first became aware of Simone Gad running into her at art openings where she was often accompanied by Sheree Rose. I heard that Simone was a former child actor and outsider artist, but didn’t know her all that well. That all changed one day when Sean Meredith suggested we partner for an exhibition at Track 16.
I will be part of an artist talk at Track 16 on Thursday, April 11th at 7PM with Debra Broz and Simone Gad in conjunction with our exhibition, Stuck Together . We will be joined by curator, artist, and agitator, Marcus Kuiland-Nazario who will moderate.
Stuck Together: Simone Gad, Marsian De Lellis, + Debra Broz opens at Track 16 on Saturday, March 16th from 7-10PM. The exhibition features oozing dolls from my (In) Animate Objects collection, Debra Broz’s mutant ceramic bunnies, and Simone Gad’s rescue pinups.
