On August 27 & 28, New York will be graced with “The Public Hi-Fi Balloon,” an exhibit of more than 60 Robert Pollard collages at NYC’s The 45 Space (45 Bond Street, between Lafayette & Bowery), hosted by Vanity Fair’s Michael Hogan and visual artist Todd DiCiurcio.
You know Bob’s work from his album covers (or the 2008 Fantagraphics book of his art), but these are phenomenal pieces that need to be seen in person to fully appreciate.
Opening night is Friday, August 27, from 6-11 PM, and the exhibit will also be open to visitors on the 28th from 2-11 PM. Check Pollard’s website for more info.
You should also know that Bob Pollard shares a Halloween birthday with Vermeer, Johnny Marr, Ad-Rock, Larry Mullen Jr., and Vanilla Ice.
