YOU TOLD ME THE OTHER NIGHT
OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, APRIL 5, 7-9PM


West Street Gallery is pleased to present “You Told Me the Other Night.” The group show features new work by Sam Anderson, Trisha Baga and Nick Parker, Ian Cheng, Greg Fong, Grayson Revoir, Anicka Yi.


You told me the other night
That you Googled yourself
And found a boring YouTube video
Made by a high school kid with your
Name. In the video he said his
Name, you said, and it was weird.
Somewhere in something
That you sang to me that you had written
This occurred, something about you having
No name, or a name that might as well be no
name at all. Or no identity. And the dead
Generality of your childhood you’d woken
Up from.
