ohwow

Today through Sunday, Know-Wave, the online radio station conceived by Aaron Bondaroff (aka A-ron, the Downtown Don, aka the founder of Los Angeles’s OHWOW gallery), which typically broadcasts from New York, will be live down in Dallas. The change of location is timed to coincide with the Dallas Art Fair, where OHWOW, naturally, is showing work.

The station is operating out of the Comme des Garçons Play storefront at Dallas’s Joule Hotel, and will feature live broadcasts throughout the weekend as well as a re-creation of the OHWOW Book Club, the West Village boutique shop designed by Architecture at Large’s Rafael de Cardenás that usually serves as Know-Wave’s base of operations. (Mr. Cardenás also worked with the gallery on the Dallas space.) Read More
