Bryce Galloway: Mumbling Through to the Chorus
21 February 2007
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mumbling Through to the Chorus
Opens at The Engine Room
5.30pm Tuesday 27 February 2007
For the first Engine Room show of the year artist Bryce Galloway turns the gallery into a reading room for his fanzine, enticing his audience with free coffee, zines and music.
The exhibition also launches the 26th issue of Incredibly Hot Sex with Hideous People, a non-musical collaboration with Daniel Powell. In cartoon form the pair have diarised the same dates in late 2006, from their respective homes in Wellington, New Zealand and Verl, Germany.
Bryce Galloway is a Massey Wellington Fine Arts Lecturer. He is best known for his musical output as Wendyhouse, with collaborator Daniel “EE monk” Powell, and for Incredibly Hot Sex with Hideous People, the fanzine he established in 2002. Galloway’s art delivers a personal politic that is lo-fi, everyday and infused with self-deprecating humour.
The Engine Room is a public art gallery focused on developing an important site within Wellington for the exhibition of diverse and interesting contemporary art. Established in late 2005, The Engine Room is located on the Massey University campus and is managed by the School of Fine Arts.
