Everyone asks, "who is Michael Jang?" but has anyone checked lately, HOW is Michael Jang? We sure did... and he... is thriving. For one thing, he was just awarded a coveted 2021 Guggenheim Fellowship and now a Deadbeat Club zine! Even as the pandemic altered our perception of shared space, with the indoors largely off-limits, Jang continued showing his photos - at intersections, on street corners, across shuttered windows and doors, free to the public, on view indefinitely and prone to spontaneous "collaboration". "A Funny Thing Happened On My Way To The Noodle Bar" is a selection of original photos and their latest public reincarnations for what Jang describes as, "Automatic for the People... free, no need to check your bag, food and 'drink' allowed. Open 24-7."
