We’ve been hardcore Oliver Ralli stans for over a decade, catching his performances at our favorite Bushwick art and performance venues— including the unforgettable 2010 sci-fi rock-opera New Hope City at the Bushwick Starr Theater. Oliver’s 2018 + 2020 solo albums as UN INSTRUMENT hold permanent residence in our car’s cassette deck and cd player respectively— Smartphone Mixtape and The Lockdown Hustle, a socially-distant, pandemic-inspired collaboration with 20 fellow musicians. Both are streaming on all platforms, click image above 💿

We met Li this past year at LABspace, as he’s been living and making art + musicright here in Hillsdale NY. Li shot 3 of his videos at our favorite barn-on-a-farm art space, The Re Institute in Millerton. LI’smusic features smart social commentary and melodic, catchy hooks that “tell a tale you've never heard & know all too well.” Click image or visit whoisli.me for links to video and streaming 🎥

JOIN US for both sets THIS SAT 3-5PM at LABspace, and meet Connie and Russell of GUZMAN. They will be available to answer questions about our current exhibition Kurt + Courtney: a floor-to-ceiling installation of outtakes, one-of-a-kind polaroids, and test shots from the iconic 1992 photo shoot with Love and Cobain in their LA home. Image: GUZMAN, Courtney Love and Francis Bean, Los Angeles 1992, Archival Ink on Gampi Paper, 8 x 11 inches, framed, NFS

Click image above for 10 Exhibits Not To Miss in Rural Intelligence, by John Seven who writes:

“‘Kurt & Courtney: Never-before seen photos from the collaborative photography duo Guzman’ features iconic 1992 photo shoot in the Cobain’s LA home that ought to draw people in. Photographic collaborators Guzman — that is Constance Hansen and Russell Peacock — shaped an era for many people who came of age in the 1990s though they may not know their names. Known for their work with famous musicians, the team began their career shooting Debbie Harry for her 1986 album "Rockbird," and went on to capture names like Janet Jackson, Salt N Pepa, Lenny Kravitz, Snoop Dogg, and many others. Their most famous work is of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love, the result of a 1992 assignment for Spin Magazine, and that’s the focus of this show, which includes previously unseen photos from that session. The show at LABspace will also feature photos of other subject matter that cement the duo’s versatility and the depth they bring to whatever they shoot.” 

We look forward to seeing you Saturday, July 10th!
