NEW YORK—Spent fire crackers compose almost zombie-like, life-size figures. The bold red sculptures by Carl Emanuel Wolff are at the Schuebbe Projects exhibit at Volta NY. Innovative and inspiring work can be found throughout the invitational art show featuring emerging contemporary artists. Yesterday, Wilmer Wilson, a photographer and performance artist, spent six hours adhering postage stamps to his body.
The show is being presented at 7 West 34th Street in conjunction with Armory Arts Week and runs from March 8 to March 11, 2012.
