Braulio Amado's HOUDINI // Opening Reception

This past Saturday Phantom Hand hosted the opening reception for Braulio Amado's traveling show, 'Houdini'. A few words about the show and Braulio:

"Houdini is a travelling exhibition by Braulio Amado. Inspired by the greatest magician that ever lived, the series alludes to abstract universes and fantasies, exploring mind tricks and the possibilities of the impossible. The pieces invoke the unexpected and draw from raging sounds, like those of the Melvin's "Houdini" record. Expect weird stuff.

Braulio Amado is a portuguese kid born in '87 who recently moved to NYC. He works as a graphic designer for Pentagram Design and is the director of "Pedal," a free monthly newspaper in Portugal. He plays music and tours the world with his band "Adorno."

An awesome night was had. Special thanks to Braulio for bringing his great work (and a gaggle of New Yorkers), the Phantom crew, and everybody who came out to support Braulio, the gallery, and our exhibiting artists.
The closing reception for Houdini and Artificial Dissemination 2 is Saturday, February 18th 6:00-10:00.
