The Second Best Time ↬ 15-17 December 2017
The Vanderbilt Republic is delighted to announce The Second Best Time, the second solo exhibition of Tom Lehman’s ceramic works at Gowanus Loft, a noted NYC destination for immersive encounters in performance & visual/installation art since 2012.
Curated by George Del Barrio, Creative Director × Executive Producer of The Vanderbilt Republic, this completely unique installation will feature Lehman’s latest collection of ceramic creations: cylindrical, custom-glazed 18” lamp bases resulting from a year of recursive practice.
The Second Best Time will present 40+ creations, each a process step towards an ideal form. The title of Lehman’s latest showing (the second of 15, planned for the next 13 years) comes from a proverb: The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
