Apocalypse Now

Feeling apocalyptic these days? Go see "Empire," the Lori Nix / Kathleen Gerber show at Clampart Gallery on West 29th St.



Photographs of post-apoc miniatures of the city present "a world transformed by climate uncertainty and a shifting social order as it stumbles towards a new kind of frontier."

It's oddly relieving to see it all fallen apart.

You'll also find a few of Nix's miniature sculptures on display, including a trio of abandoned hot dog carts and a scene of sidewalk newspaper boxes complete with rats and Chinese take-out containers.



The headline?

GLOOM, DESPAIR, AGONY, ENNUI

The show is up until January 27 and there's an artist talk on Saturday, January 13, from 3:00 – 4:00 p.m.
