Dengue Fever Now On View At Ballroom Marfa

30 Jun 2016

Ballroom Marfa is pleased to host Dengue Fever, the second of four exhibitions conceived for Arturo Bandini’s year long installation in the courtyard, a perfect copy of their iconic Los Angeles gallery. As a worm in an apple, or a tongue licking a psychoactive toad, or more to the point a wet willy, works by Kelly Akashi, Marten Elder, John Finneran, S Gernsbacher, Drew Heitzler, Sarah Manuwal, Calvin Marcus, and Roni Shneior surround and infuse the building (both inside and out), saturating it with meaning. Arturo Bandini is a collaborative project/gallery by artists Michael Dopp and Isaac Resnikoff. The gallery occupies a small building designed by Joakim Dahlqvist that fluidly transposes interior and exterior space, mirroring Bandini’s promiscuous curatorial sensibility. Documentation of the exhibition follows. All photos by Alex Marks courtesy the artists and Ballroom Marfa.
