Best Opening: Something Like a Fahamenon

Staff Pick

We didn't think Fahamu Pecou could go any further over the top, but Vaknin Gallery aided and abetted the painter/performance artist in scaling still higher peaks of irony-laced bravado for the opening of last summer's SOMETHING LIKE A FAHAMENON. If you weren't there, here's what you missed: flappers, bootleggers, dapper dons, a red carpet, the paparazzi, a velvet settee, walking sticks, singer – no, chanteuse – Tori Alamaze, and DJ Cha Cha Jones stroking eardrums en masse. Oh, and the art, too: For the first time, Pecou showed the conceptual reference photos on which his larger-than-life paintings are based. And in true Fahamu fashion, a peek behind the curtain revealed … another curtain.
