Joseph Ari Aloi: A Thousand Mornings
September 7 – 28, 2017
88 ½ Seventh Avenue NYC
Opening: Sept. 7, 6 – 9 p.m.
Joseph Ari Aloi, who after graduating RISD in ’94 built a cult following as a tattoo artist to Marc Jacobs and Heath Ledger with stints like a live tattoo residency at Deitch Projects and the credited inspiration for Rei Kawakubo’s FW 2015 Comme des Garçons line, pivots to his classically trained roots with a Chelsea exhibition of 26 new works.
