"May you live in interesting times"
Good Weather at High Tide
May 12 - June 23, 2018
Behold, the time is at hand, fulfillment awaits us.
Adolf Loos (1908)
...provided flowerpots [are] attached to the windows.

Good Weather presents a group exhibition of work by Shannon Bool, Anna Breininger, Tony Garbarini, and Stephen Kent at High Tide in Philadelphia titled '"May you live in interesting times"'. The exhibition illuminates the great ruse that death and ornament — among the devout and within the domestic — lead to fulfillment. Poking holes in this quixotic perception, the work in the show deploys still lifes, flowers, carpet, reflections, portals, kitsch, and decorative imagery to reveal a nostalgic veracity that is overripe and rotting.
