PARIS///FIRST LOOK: ESPO & MATT GOLAS AT COLETTE FOR WORLD AIDS DAY
NYC’s STEPHEN POWERS (aka: ESPO) teamed up with artist MATT GOLAS for a collaborative art exhibition “A True Provider is Good to Find” at Parisian hotspot COLETTE that opened this weekend in commemoration of WORLD AIDS DAY on December 1st. Addressing the issue of Paris’ large prostitute population, Espo created a run of custom made yellow raincoats as a metaphor for protection, many of which were given to and worn by actual prostitutes, while Golas created a run of handmade magnetic hotel key cards as a metaphor for emotional shelter. In addition to Powers’ raincoats, the hightop-faded artist also exhibited a large array of his personal photography and trademark handpainted signage bearing such heartfelt messaging as “Everything is shit except for you love,” and “I love you so fucking much it hurts.” Both Powers’ raincoats and Golas’ hotel keys are available now through the gallery’s online shop.
