Bobo is an art collective that emerged out of the Providence scene post-Fort Thunder. I really love Bobo’s poster “The Global Order of the Youngbloods,” it’s an overdose of occult and conspiracy infotainment. Bobo has managed to create a fun scene on their own terms. They ran a space in Philadelphia for a while, but now seem to be arranging/curating shows in New York, and performing as a band. Annie Pearlman brought them to my attention when I was doing a studio visit with Brian Belott.
These three pics are from a project where they create brand labels. Bobo then prints out the labels and sticks them to burned and melted piles of garbage.
Bobo is going to be in a group show at Secret Project Robot in Brooklyn that opens March 6th.
