Big Law Country Club Gallery presents EyeBodega: Work in Progress
September 18–October 15, 2014
EyeBodega will present Work in Progress at Big Law Country Club beginning September 18. The show consists of a working graphic design studio, hand built to fit the space and provide a productive environment in which EyeBodega will create a set of new work based around the threefold ideas of reproduction, process, and information-sharing.
Design, as a medium, depends on an open and public flow of visual ideas. Eyebodega plan to use Work in Progress as an opportunity to create a public forum for their concepts in progress. As the show progresses, the studio will create a series of commissioned and self-initiated zines in the space which can be considered to be either materials or manuals for others to create their own work. By working in public, the studio will invite the public to comment and interact with them while they make these zines, creating the possibility of influence from this public exchange.
The first thing any design studio needs is a desk and chairs. To build their furniture, Eyebodega turned to the work of designer Enzo Mari and his landmark book “Autoprogettazione?” They translated his DIY furniture both literally and artistically, producing a unique set of simple office furniture suited to their project. During the show, the studio will run workshops where the public can learn more about Mari and his chairs, building their own from schematics the team modified to work in the United States.
EyeBodega is a multi-disciplinary New York City design studio founded by Rob Chabebe and Joe Perez, with the assistance of Ari Spool. Their work has been flatteringly described as “post-apocalyptic modernism.” The group works in a variety of visual media ranging from print to interactive to video. Special thanks to Kenny Batu, Caroline David, Borja Urque and Zach Smith. Learn more at Eyebodega.com
October 11th please join EyeBodega at the Silent Barn for a DIY furniture building workshop.

Assalamualaikum Babycastles, the premiere exhibition at Babycastles Gallery!
May 27th – August 31st, 2014
Tuesday May 27th, 6:30pm–9:30pm
137 W 14th St, New York
The premiere exhibition at Babycastles Gallery, Assalamualaikum Babycastles is an exploration of the “lived Muslim experience” through the embedded narratives of independent, contemporary video games. These stories capture the various threads of Muslim life throughout the world and deal with subjects such as surveillance, war, and classical Muslim art. The games give visitors the agency to partake in these experiences inside Babycastles Gallery, where an immersive, physical installation inspired by Islamic aesthetics and created by contemporary artists houses the work. In addition to independent game developers, Assalamualaikum Babycastles will also feature work from “modders” who appropriate existing, western-based video games and visually fashion them into experiences that reflect their own.
