I bought the book, went to the launch, and now…the exhibition!
Before I headed over to yesterday’s Pete Souza book launch of “Shade, A Tale of Two Presidents” at the NYC Union Square Barnes & Noble, I went gallery-hopping a handful of blocks north-west.
To coincide with Souza’s new book, the Steven Kasher Gallery is hosting a solo exhibition, “Pete Souza: Throw Shade, Then Vote,” featuring 13 of his works with texts in shady juxtapositions of the Obama vs. Trump administrations. The archival pigment prints are produced in limited batches, and are signed and numbered by Souza himself. All but one can be had for $3k, with the exception of Shade #13 for $6k. Guys, that makes the perfect holiday gift! I mean, who doesn’t want a photo of Obama horseback riding on the beach?!
The exhibition runs through December 8th, and is located at 515 West 26th Street, New York, NY 10001. The gallery, on the second floor, is open from Tuesday through Saturday, 10 AM to 6 PM. Go check it out!
