Next up, the Very Young Millionaire himself, Brad Troemel. Brad is from Chicago and currently studying at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. One of the most active and ambitious young artists I know, he is bringing one of his best projects to The Young Jerks next Thursday. Utilizing photography, sculpture, video and more Brad sets his sights on youth rituals, tropes, and phenomenon. From the above piece entitled The Insustainability of Excess (Mike Sets His Head on Fire Smoking Weed, 2004) to a looped video of MySpace “celebrities” proving their existence, Mr. Troemel is surely reinstating his status as one of the most thought provoking image makers of his generation. See it all on Thursday, September 11th.
