“So What” is a group exhibition at Company Gallery, including G.B Jones, Jonathan Lyndon Chase, Robert Bittenbender, Sadie Barnette, Theresa Chromati, Cajsa von Zeipel, DeSe Escobar, Victoria Colmegna, Will Sheldon, E. Jane, Frieda Toranzo Jaeger, and Women’s History Museum. These works investigate the alchemic powers of adolescence and are hosted exclusively on Tumblr. The “So What,” Tumblr page features an essay by Kay Gabriel and a track by SHYBOI, also titled “So What.” Frieda Toranzo Jaeger’s work mixes the at first seemingly opposing hand-heavy work of oil painting and embroidery, in “There is a vacuum inside all of us.” Jaeger’s investigation of the erotic female body invites moments of acuity and casual wit. Theresa Chromati’s surrealist painting hints at sublime radical empiricism, “Stepping toward my darkest bits to hear a familiar song. The words have changed, but the melody caresses me all the same (woman lead by her intuition supported by scrotum flower.”Dese Escobar’s quadriptych “Eleganzia” is a classic still life on a marble dining table, with jewelry on an opal dinner plate, flanked by depression-era blush pink wine glasses.

Topical Cream’s friends and family gathered at 50 Bowery rooftop bar to celebrate our 6th anniversary.
Flaunt Magazine picked up the story. Sahra Motalebi’s booming operatic voice greeted our guests, who had to walk through the massive blacked out space to reach the elevator and the party on the top floor.

Nicole Eisenman and Theresa Chromati were honored with custom Ilegal Mezcal cocktails and Whitney Fred, Ren G, Dese Escobar, and Venus X DJ’d. The party mood was gothic Miami with hot pink lighting surrounding palm tree, while friends of Topical Cream arrived in their very best club looks to for the occasion.
