‘DMYCC’ BOOK RELEASE BY SEAN VEGEZZI, NEW YORK CITY
11/09/2017
Events, News
DoBeDo contributor Sean Vegezzi is releasing a new book, DMYCC, which documents the artists’ decade-long engagement with a cavernous underground area constructed beneath Lower Manhattan. DMYCC is comprised of the book, an hour long video piece and his first ever collection of prints. 
 
As New York City experienced aggressive development and hyper-securitization of public and private realms, Vegezzi and his friends were drawn towards undefined spaces to pursue their own forms of autonomy and release. From early adolescence onward they leveraged this piece of failed architecture into an alternate social forum, stage, club, and studio space. Over the years we see DMYCC develop from a contaminated space with non-functioning utilities into one treated with dust control chemicals to improve air quality, a working drainage system, primed walls, repaired electricity lines and lighting systems.
 
The book is presented as a loose chronological narrative, with the images in DMYCC eventually forming a comprehensive mapping of the territory; ranging from early evocative analogue photographs of youthful explorations through to video stills, receipts, and architectural floor plans; concluding with full-scale photographic surveys that challenge bureaucratic structural reports in both detail and formal composition. 

DMYCC will be released at the opening on Sunday September 24th, and is available to buy online here.

The publication of DMYCC is also accompanied by the release of a collection of prints made available by the artist. To view more information please click here.

SCOTT – BOOKLET RELEASE
05/02/2016
Events, Film, News

DoBeDo contributor Sean Vegezzi is releasing a booklet, ‘SCOTT’ this weekend in New York City.

Organised by Vegezzi, Spencer Tullis and Alec Tinmar, the publication is an attempt to place the societal fixation on archetypal characters of the urban environment within larger concepts of art history and contemporary theoretical frameworks.

The booklet, bound by black plastic spirals and protected by a clear cover, is a direct reference to the ‘pitch books’ given by investment banks to potential investors. White text sits on burgundy pages within the printed booklet. Interspersed throughout are quotes from architecture critic Montgomery Schuyler, presented as they were written in a private brochure printed for Frank Winfield Woolworth in 1913. The contributions included within ‘SCOTT’ are largely works of fiction; elaborations on biases and cartoonish stereotypes sprouted from unsavoury personal recollections.

‘SCOTT’ is released on Saturday February 6th 2016, inside of the atrium at 60 Wall Street.

JOEY – BOOKLET RELEASE
10/12/2015
Events, News

DoBeDo contributor Sean Vegezzi is releasing a booklet, ‘JOEY’ this weekend in New York City.

“Joey”, an affectionate colloquialism naming a stereotype of New York City’s builders, was the inspiration for a reading that took place in December 2014 (eighty feet under Midtown Manhattan) inside of New York City Transit System’s 7 Line Extension Project. 

This event, video document, and compilation of poems, essays, and songs are part of an ongoing celebration of those who construct and labor over the spaces we move through and around – not the architects, designers or developers – but the Joeys.

‘JOEY’ is released on Saturday 12th December 2015 outside of 34th Street – Hudson Yards 7 Train Station.
