Marvelli Gallery in Chelsea presents 60 Seconds in Heaven, the first solo exhibition by German artist Nils Karsten (BFA 1999 Fine Arts). The show will present approximately 30 drawings and will be on view through April 17. The opening reception is Friday, March 12, 6 – 8pm at Marvelli Gallery, 526 West 26th Street, 2nd floor.
Karsten’s drawings explore themes of childhood and memory. His work portrays seemingly charming narratives, but on closer look reveal underlying themes of exploitation, violence, and sexuality.
