This July and August Exile presents its second annual Summer Camp curated by New York based Artist, Writer, Editor and Independent Publisher Billy Miller. For this year’s SummerCamp Miller curated two simultaneous exhibitions entitled Head Shop and Lost Horizon:
Head Shop is both a nod to legendary ‘60s bohemian boutiques like Granny Takes A Trip, and an evocation of the idea of the mind as a storehouse of images and potentialities.
