This is a show I'm in that opens Saturday, November 24. Many of these artists are not in what I'm calling the Steffany Martz Biennial (in joke--meaning the Whitney 2008). I'm pleased to be in "Bitmap," though--a kind of counter Biennial for the abject geek set. I started using the word "bitmap" in gallery labels about '98 to the consternation of print mag reviewers so it's nice to be in this crowd.
