Tops is pleased to present Sad men on bad afternoons, a group exhibition curated by Daniel Fuller featuring the work of Natalie Labriola, Joseriberto Perez, Lauren Taylor, and Kandis Williams.
Sad men on bad afternoons explores notions of awakenings, of seeing true beauty on the most difficult days. It is a renewal or a heightened awareness of modest moments. The show considers a range of self-preservation techniques from a tropical sunset, physical adornment, to allowing yourself to venture into a new psychic space. Located in a glass box in a busy city park, the work is communal adjacent; sharing at a distance, attempting to connect, to escape, to find exactly what is needed just around that next corner.
