Lollipop: Gutai Influences
Three of the women, adorned in dresses made out of newspaper, entered Little Apple Market on N. 7th Street in Allentown. They made their way through the turnstile just inside the door, careful not to rip their newsprint and spotted a rack of coupon pamphlets. They stopped and noticed the paper coupon booklets were pretty much the same material as their dresses. So, they stopped, giggled, looked at each other and took a few copies. You know, in case they needed an emergency hem.
The artists are just a few of 25 Japanese artists taking up residency in Allentown from February 10 to March 2 as part of the international art exchange entitled “Lollipop: Gutai Influences.” The event is being coordinated by the great people at Fuse Art Infrastructure.
