Ashlie Cotton wrote in the LowDown:
As I entered the gallery space at Theater For The New City, I was pleasantly surprised at the eclectic vibe of the show. The space seemed so different from every other gallery show that I had been to lately; the walls were screaming of the old eccentricities of the East Village. The lobby for this rich cultural center doubles as gallery, and it is here that the retrospective show for Peter J. Ketchum hangs.
His pieces are all at once witty and provocative as he takes controversial images and words from the past and reinstates them in the modern world. Ketchum’s lighter and more comical work reminded me of the playful Ashleigh Brilliant, who created pot-shots. Other pieces are more serious and have deeper messages about topics like sexism and racism. This is defiantly an interesting and unique show to check out before it closes on October 25th.
From the web site Artslant:
