All These Reputable Wallmates

Also in New York on April 2nd, "Lots of Things Like This," curated by Dave Eggers, will have its opening reception at Apexart, from 6 to 8 pm (I'll be stopping by early then bustling to Brooklyn for the afore-posted "Omega the Unknown" signing).

The show runs until May 10th, and though I've yet to see all the individual pieces involved, the cast is impressive (to put it mildly). That complete cast is:

Jean-Michel Basquiat, Leonard Cohen, David Berman, Ted Berrigan, Joe Brainard, Georges Braque, Jeffrey Brown, R. Crumb, Henry Darger, Marcel Duchamp, CM Evans, Shephard Fairey, David Godbold, Alasdair Gray, Philip Guston, Paul Hornschemeier, Jay Howell, Chris Johanson, Maira Kalman, Kenneth Koch, David Mamet, Quenton Miller, Tucker Nichols, Alice Notley, Ron Padgett, Raymond Pettibon, Dan Perjovschi, Amy Jean Porter, Steve Powers, Royal Art Lodge, Peter Saul, George Schneeman, Olga Scholten, David Shrigley, Shel Silverstein, Nedko Solakov, Ralph Steadman, William Steig, Saul Steinberg, Kurt Vonnegut
