Hustle: Museum of Spectacle Exhibition
Start Date: 6/29/2018 All Day
End Date: 8/5/2018

Event Description:
The University of West Florida’s Pensacola Museum of Art invites the public to view “Hustle: Museum of Spectacle”, an exhibition of headlining artists Matty Jankowski, Jimbo Easter & Julia Gorton. Featured artist Frederick W. Glasier and images from the “Circus! The Photographs of Frederick W. Glasier” collection of The John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, are on view now through Sunday, Aug. 5, 2018, in the Lewis Bear Family and Greenhut Construction galleries as well as Stairwell Galleries and The Art Gallery located on the first and second floors of the museum. An opening reception will be held on Friday, June 29, 2018, from 6 - 9 p.m. featuring an artists’ talk with Jankowski, Easter, Gorton, and Felicia Gail, assistant curator for the museum.

“Hustle: Museum of Spectacle” was born from looking at Jankowski’s New York City body archive, a collection that depicts his experiences as a tattooer, writer, bookseller, and artist who lived and worked in Brooklyn, New York from 1948 until moving to his current home in Panama City, Florida in the early 2000s. His life and work links to early museum, circus, sideshow, and tattoo history from the mid-nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first centuries as well as photography, sculpture, installation, performance, and mail art from the 1960s to present. Jankowski has exhibited nationally and internationally and helped lead the way for body modification in the U.S. Gorton, is a New York-based photographer and collage artist has captured decisive moments from the likes of Lydia Lunch, David Byrne, Richard Hell, and Patti Smith from New York City’s “no wave” scene in the late 1970s. Whether laid out inside a messy apartment or performing on stage at CBGB, the birthplace of New York City’s Rock, Folk and Punk music, Gorton reveals the vulnerable, yet empowered, bodies her black and white portrait photography represents. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including in “No Wave: Post-Punk. Underground. New York. 1976-1980.” a book by Thurston Moore and Byron Coley and recently in New York City at the International Center for Photography and MoMA. Gorton is currently program director at Parsons School of Design in New York City. Easter, a Detroit native, takes an outsider art and Punk aesthetic, matched with a mythology of drawings and performances that exhibit a post-modern, primitive revival of uncanny and private culture. Easter has performed nationally and internationally, including at Art Basel in Miami Beach, Detroit Institute of Arts Museum, and Third Man Records in Detroit.
