Flavorpill picked Clare Haggarty and Andrew Tosiello's exhibit at Little Tree this month.
Here's what they say:
"Anyone who caught CCA's last MFA show knows that Andrew Tosiello's work — in particular, his texts that recast the artist-buyer relationship as one steeped in Mafia-style extortion — was a highlight. Tosiello's latest project further explores the artist-as-mobster theme by converting Little Tree Gallery into a social club for the Tosiello "family" (including curator Clare Haggarty and the artist's close friends). Viewers are invited to participate in this Puzo-esque spin on Joseph Beuys' notion of social sculpture on Thursdays and Saturdays. If you don't have an invitation, entry is at the boss' discretion — and he doesn't take kindly to rats."
