Dave Knapik Photography at the 2012 Verge Art Fair NYC

The 2012 Verge Art Fair opens tonight at 159 Bleecker Street in New York City. I will be showing a selection of my photos, including my latest work with the Impossible Project’s integral film for Polaroid cameras. My friends Leif, Maja, Edmund and Adam are showing as well. We’re all in the basement, so if you’re in NYC, come check us out, and take in all the amazing work on the two other floors of the space, too!

Tonight’s opening runs from 6pm until 10pm and admission is $10. The show runs through Sunday, May 6. A preview of the work I have on display can be seen below.

Touch Radio 64 and 74

I’ve been so remiss in posting lately that I’ve not only had the honor of contributing a photograph to Touch Radio 64, but the just-released Touch Radio 74 as well. The former is a fascinating field recording of the songs of wolves by Yannick Dauby, whilst the latter is a piece by one of my favorite electronic musicians, CM von Hausswolff.

Please take the time to listen and enjoy these recent instalments in a fantastic podcast series. You can subscribe to Touch Radio via iTunes or you can stream all episodes directly from the Touch iPhone app (which I helped make—sorry that I still haven’t posted about that!).

Many thanks to Mike Harding for his continued encouragement of my artistic pursuits as well as to Jon Wozencroft for always having been a visual inspiration to me.

Touch Radio 60

Do you like pubs? I like pubs. Who doesn’t like pubs?

When I lived in London, I spent most of my time in them. As you do.

The good people at Touch have just released the latest installment in their exceptional Touch Radio podcast series, Pub. They were kind enough to pay me the honor of using the above photograph of mine as the visual counterpart to this episode. As a longtime follower of their always brilliant releases, I am massively thrilled to have my work presented alongside theirs.

The recording is of secret origin, but I do know one thing that I am permitted to tell you: it was recorded in a London pub. It’s Friday, so have a pint of ale, listen to Pub and allow yourself to enter this pub. It’s a friendly, lively place.

Another pint of Adnams, please!

Dave Knapik Photography at Chicago Artists Month

October is Chicago Artists Month and I’m participating in two East Pilsen shows this weekend, October 1–3. The first is located at 2003 S. Halsted Street and is organized by the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs, the Chicago Arts District and Gapers Block. I have two 11″ x 14″ photographs in this show and share the space with loads of other talented local artists. The second will be held in The Ministry of Caps at 732 W. 19th Street, #3R and features several of my photographs along with a selection of jewelry from Bees on Toast. Both shows occur simultaneously, but are within a five minute walk of each other. Friday, October 1 is the opening night party from 6pm to 10pm, but the show continues on Saturday, October 2 and Sunday, October 3 from 12pm to 7pm.

Please come and visit these shows, bring friends and take the opportunity to see my neighborhood. All the galleries in this art district will be open, so once you’ve seen my work, I encourage you to spend time experiencing the talents my neighbors have to offer.
