HOT HOT HOT
January 9- February 23, 2020
Howl! Happening: An Arturo Vega Project is pleased to present Jane Dickson’s Hot, Hot, Hot, a series of rarely seen and moody paintings of Times Square peep shows from the 1980s. Dickson’s history and legacy are rooted in Times Square. She worked and lived there from 1978 to 2008 documenting her daily lived experiences and observations as a young woman. In photos, drawings, and paintings that utilize unconventional industrial and domestic materials as surfaces—including carpet, sandpaper, and black plastic bags—she captured a time and place that was notoriously lawless, squalid, and vibrantly alive.
