In The Can.
I don't know Charley Friedman, but I know a lot of people who do. My bet is that he'd love the fact that the folks at P.S. 1 put his video, One Hour Smile, in the can. This happens to be the first work of his that I saw about 7 years ago in a group show at a now-closed Chelsea gallery. It will hurt your face. Smile.
Additionally, my most recent encounter with his work was in one of my favorite spaces in Chelsea, the Kantor/Feurer Window. And don't get me started on the genius of reselling those Felix Gonzales Torres candies on the street. For real. We need way more Charley.
