Los Angeles-based artist Dani Dodge is opening her first New York solo show at A.I.R. Gallery. “Fugitive Love Song” runs October 12 to November 12, 2017. Dodge has exhibited her work extensively at museums and galleries throughout the West Coast.
Fugitive Love Song documents Dodge’s 2016 guerrilla art project carried out in locations throughout Los Angeles and places she visited, including New York. For 366 days, using lipstick, spray paint, markers and printed flyers, Dodge surreptitiously (and sometimes shamelessly) spread a singular message: “# Just the way you are.” By distilling a potent message of affirmation through this iconic song lyric, Dodge used her public intervention to insert small, fleeting moments of joy into the otherwise chaotic tempo of everyday life.
