Andrew Edlin Gallery is pleased to present Henry Darger, its third solo exhibition of the renowned self-taught artist’s work. The show, comprised of approximately two dozen works taken from the gallery’s inventory and borrowed from private collections, encompasses some of Darger’s very earliest experiments in collage, as well as an ample selection of his large-scale, late-career masterpieces. Among them, are several works that are being exhibited for the first time, including a panoramic composition that showcases creatures never before encountered in Darger’s Realms of the Unreal: green-skinned plant/human hybrids with vines and blossoming flowers growing from their girlish bodies…

…The opening reception on Saturday, September 11th, from 4 to 7 pm, features two special events: At 5 pm, the acclaimed author Rivka Galchen (Atmospheric Disturbances, 2009), accompanied by Karen Russell, will lead a discussion on Darger centered around John Ashbery’s poem Girls on the Run. At 6 pm, the indie rock band The Vivian Girls will give a musical performance.

As you may know, the band “Vivian Girls” is named after Darger characters.

That’s on Saturday (today). On Sunday, Cassie plays a ten minute set at Todd P’s annual Unamplified event. For a full set from Cassie, who has gone solo, you’ll have to wait until September 19th when she plays Glasslands. La Sera, aka Kickball Katy, plays NYC during CMJ, and October 2nd at Funhouse in Seattle.

And as we pointed out already, the Vivian Girls played a set at ATP NY last weekend. A second set of pictures from that show, and a video of Cassie playing solo at Cinders Gallery in August, below…
