myplasticheart is happy to present “Bad Luck Club” a show curated by Aya Kakeda and featuring the work of thirteen female artists working in the New York area. “Bad Luck Club” was first shown in CA at the beginning of the summer and will be making its debut in NYC with its opening at myplasticheart on September 30th from 6-9pm.
According to Aya: My idea was to feature my favorite female artists in the New York Area. I’ve been surrounded by really talented and young female artists since I moved to New York, so it was pretty easy for me to organize this. Some I have known for more than 10 years; some I’ve recently met. The title of the show came from my good friend, Eddie Hemingway. There were thirteen girls and the number thirteen gave him the idea for the show. The contrast of the title and the artwork is interesting. When people first see “Bad Luck Club,” it makes them think of very dark artwork, but the work of the thirteen artists is as vibrant and colorful as it is grim and melancholic.
