At Thanksgiving, your judgiest relatives inevitably ask what you’ve been up to in New York. But since you’re probably not going to tell them what you did at tonight’s CONVICTS party, yet we still want you to have the best banter at the turkey table this week, CONVICTS cordially invites you to artist Ian Strange’s new show ISLAND, opening this Saturday night. 

ISLAND consists of large photos of foreclosed upon homes in America’s heartland that have undergone paint interventions, artifacts from the homes themselves, a rebuilt section of a demolished house, plus visual aspects of Strange’s research and planning process. Presented by Standard Practice and CONVICTS, ISLAND’s opening will happen Saturday, November 18 from 6-9 P.M. at 149 West 14th Street. The show will run until December 16, 2017.
