Otis March at Adjacent To Life

Minnig_Otis.jpg

Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Otis March: Drawings by Mark Minnig.

Otis March is animator Mark Minnig’s friend, companion, muse and dog. Art has always been an important part of their interaction. In the ongoing creative collaboration Otis has contributed as muse – an active instigator of artmaking.

These sketches represent a small fraction of the drawings Otis has inspired. Integrated into life and Mark’s various modes of production, the drawings are a revelation of an artist’s process, representing a development of vocabulary, contemplative focus, a refinement of skills of observation … and affection.

A longtime New Yorker by way of Baltimore, Mark Minnig played in the bands Kid Casanova, The Thumbs and The Fuses. He is currently working towards an MFA in Computer Arts at SVA. Otis can frequently be spotted exploring the East Village and has inspired his own popular hashtag: #otismarch.

Otis March: Drawings by Mark Minnig runs through December 8 and is on view at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, New York City).

Look at me/Don’t look at me! at Adjacent to Life

Nassor_sasheer.jpg

Tinsquo's curatorial project, Adjacent To Life, presents Chioke Nassor's Look at me/Don’t look at me!

Nassor states, "Look at me/Don’t look at me! is a series of portrait photography that explores what it means to expose yourself, and how sometimes obscuring part of yourself can reveal the truest truth. I’m fascinated by taking portraits of people that attempt to capture who they feel like inside. I also find that my portraits end up reflecting a lot about how I feel inside, too."

Chioke Nassor writes and directs for film, TV, and the web. His previous work includes writing and directing short films for NBC's Late Night with Seth Meyers, the feature film How to Follow Strangers, the TV on the Radio Documentary "Minor/Major" and his web series Chioke Nassor's Storytime.

Look at me/Don’t look at me! runs through October 27 and is on view at the Adjacent to Life pop-up gallery housed in Ninth Street Espresso (341 E. 10th Street at Ave B, New York City).
