Aferro New Media Room October 20-November 17, 2007
Opening Reception Saturday October 27, 6-9:30 PM

Gallery Aferro proudly presents Michael Paul Britto's solo show, Normative Behaviors, in the New Media Room. New and unseen work will be premiered, in addition to acclaimed works such as Ghetto Games, Authenticity of a Smile , and Super N Word. Britto says that he has "always been fascinated by the creativity spawned from not having, or being deprived. Ghetto Games explores such resourcefulness: the ability to modify one's surroundings to be more conducive to one's amusement."

"I like to challenge the viewer to remember the past, and pay close attention to what we accept in our everyday lives as being acceptable behavior from popular culture."

Britto's work has been shown internationally, including in Uncomfortable Truths -The Shadow Of Slave Trading On Contemporary Art & Design , Victoria and Albert Museum, South Kensington, London, Frequency, Studio Museum of Harlem, New York, NY, Black Panther Rank & File , Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, San Francisco, CA, and S-Files, El Museo del Barrio, New York, NY.
