The Laundromat is pleased to announce the first event of its 2009 season, The Burger Group Show an exhibition of artwork and conceptual hamburgers by Laundromat artists Chris Deo, Sarah McDougald Kohn, Maria Walker, Jonathan Allmaier, Juliane Zelwies, Ben Godward, Joe Protheroe, Ianthe Jackson and Liz Atzberger. The Burger Show combines two of New York’s most beloved summer traditions: the group show, and the barbecue, for an evening of multi-sensory fun.

The artists will prepare burgers at the gallery, each designed with an art historical or conceptual theme and described on our menu. For example:

The Bernini Burger: Crafted in honor of the 17th century Italian Baroque sculptor Gianlorenzo Bernini, this burger conveys a sense of motion, the suppleness of its materials and a dramatic flair. A beef patty, fleshy and rounded, surmounted by flowing draperies of prosciutto, a cloud of goat cheese, and a splash of the finest extra virgin olive oil. St. Teresa herself never felt such an ecstasy as this burger will provide.

Visitors may select burgers from the menu, with prices ranging from $5 to $20, and enjoy an exhibition of drawings, paintings and sculpture including selections from The Laundromat Flat File, a collection of small works by 30 emerging artists from the U.S., Japan and Europe.
