While other young professionals in the Magic City hustled and grinded in anticipation of Happy Hour, I watched some kind of magic happen in the confines of a studio in Little Haiti. The better part of my afternoon consisted of signing paperwork to prove my consent, getting make-up and wardrobe done, and relishing in the awkwardness of small talk. With the promise of a meager compensation, 6 of us were recruited to act as “extras” in an amateur porn shoot. Most of us had ever been “extras” in anything, let alone porn but hey, hundred bucks is a hundred bucks despite the responsible adult buried deep inside me pleading that I think of my future career as a scientist.
Hit & Run, opening this Thursday, August 9th at Gregg Shienbaum Gallery in Wynwood, is a retrospective of AholSniffsGlue’s work. The exhibition features pieces that date back to and before his official debut at Butter Gallery two years ago and includes his memorable characters and infamous eyeballs along with more recent works, some never seen before.
