Joe Grillo "#%@&?!!!" @ The Hole

The Hole is proud to announce the first solo show
at the gallery by Joe Grillo. The exhibition looks closely
at the core of Grillo's practice which is drawing and collage,
insane and abundant, from which his larger paintings, 
sculptures and other works all spring from.
