Contributing editor to this blog Efrem Zelony-Mindell is not only a great writer, and artist, he is also a great curator. Never doing anything by half, Efrem put together a fascinating group show that is running now through September 23, 2016 at the Rubber Factory down on New York's lower east side - 29 Ludlow to be precise.

I credit Efrem for keeping me on my toes and making sure I don't get too comfy in my taste. There is such a variety of works here that the show feels huge but is in fact small and easily consumable. You can read a proper sensible interview on Humble Arts between Efrem and Stephen Frailey, head of SVA's photography program and founder of Dear Dave magazine, which is concurrently featuring the images from this show.
