MF Gallery has been in the forefront of NYC's Underground Pop Art Scene for the past six years. Artists/ curators Martina Secondo Russo and Frank Russo opened the first MF Gallery on Rivington Street in June 2003. In January 2009, they opened a location in Martina's home town of Genova Italy, and the couple is planning on moving the New York MF Gallery to Gowanus, Brooklyn later this year.
Asbury Lanes'/ Parlor Gallery's "Juicy" Jen Hampton invited Martina and Frank to curate a show at Asbury Lanes, in Asbury Park, New Jersey. Being big fans of bowling, and wanting to take advantage of the Lanes' gallery and stage spaces, they put together a new show of the best MF Gallery artists, (Including Martina & Frank Russo, Death Head, Angie Mason, Joe Simko, Morg, Nicoz Balboa, Drew Maillard, Paper Monster, Aaron Tompkins, Rodrigo Melo, Mike Bell & More) and invited DETHRACE, (A death metal band made up of ten foot tall fiberglass super robots!) to rock the house at the Opening Party.
Lanes is Located at 209 Fourth Avenue in Asbury Park, NJ. The MF Gallery
Show At Asbury Lanes will be on view from May 16th- June 15th, 2009.
The opening party is on Saturday May 16th from 8pm to 12am. This will
also be the after party for Asbury Park's Art Walk, happening Earlier
in the day.
