Opening May 26, HOTSPOTS is a group exhibition to inaugurate the new location of On Stellar Rays at 213 Bowery. Featuring work by Rochelle Feinstein, Tommy Hartung, and JJ PEET, HOTSPOTS includes painting, photography, and sculpture. The exhibition takes its title from a work by Rochelle Feinstein by the same name: Feinstein’s HOTSPOTS is a 12-part painting installation, with the first painting created to mark the American-led invasion of Iraq and an additional painting created each year the U.S. maintains its military presence. JJ PEET presents STATION_Thistle and Armies Arming Armies, ceramic and mixed-media sculptures which incorporate eyeballs, teleportation devices, and various other functional and mythical objects. Tommy Hartung presents a new series of Polaroid photographs, which takes American tourism and its invasive character as its subject.
