My buddy, director Joey Garfield just sent me his new booty shaking music video for Galactic's "Do it Again" from the new album 'YA-KA-MAY'. He claims this video is "by far my most ridiculous to date so I wanted to make sure to share." And he's telling the truth, it is ridiculous, so I wanted to share with you too. Enjoy!

Coupled with the AQUARIUM installation, this reading is an extension of a series of environmentally conscious pseudo religious works called RECLAMATION, whose mission statement asks its participants, “What if people took the environment as seriously as religion?” Reclamation Reads recontextualizes this statement and asks what the world would look like if everyone decided to take the environment as seriously as they take Work - that obligatory, livelihood sustaining, spiritual, dogmatic, rewarding, ritualistic daily grind.

In the basement of an apartment building in Manhattan, Scott Zieher discovered a pile of photographs among the discarded effects of a recently deceased tenant. Exhibited for the first time at ZieherSmith and presented in a new publication of the same name from powerHouse Books, these photographs from circa 1972 offer an intimate portrait of a group of gay bikers in the city and the woods, and a touching snapshot of a historical subculture at its carefree zenith.
