Kenny Schachter: Slow Food / The NFT Gallery New York

Slow Food is the title of Kenny Schachter’s first solo exhibit in NYC in nearly 25 years. For this show at The NFT Gallery in New York, Kenny Schachter brings together three new ongoing projects: Open Book, a participatory digital publication in conjunction with the Async platform; POP PRINCIPLE: THE ART GAME, a new expansive art and NFT gaming project, powered by Daata; and, Jabberwock, the first of a sculpture/video series that highlights the absurdity and wrongheadedness of marketing dinosaur skeletons as baubles for the rich in contemporary art auctions.

Kenny Schachter talks about the Slow Food exhibition in this video that we produced in the run-up to the show.

Schachter first exhibited computer animations and prints in 1993. Kenny Schachter is known for his writing (largely for Artnet), lecturing and curating. He has been making art for more than 3 decades having recently exhibited at the Kunsthalle in Zurich earlier in the year and in Berlin at Nagel Draxler Gallery. His work is in the collection of Germany’s ZKM museum and will be the subject of a solo exhibition in September 2023 at the Francisco Carolinum Museum in Linz, Austria. The exhibition at The NFT Gallery New York runs until 17 June 2023.
