Inside ‘The Olsen Twins Hiding from the Paparazzi’ Brooklyn Exhibit

Brooklyn space currently displays paintings by Chicago artist Laura Collins, archival materials that depict Olsen twins

Last year, New York performers Matt Harkins and Viviana Olen created the Tonya Harding & Nancy Kerrigan 1994 Museum, an exhibition space in the hallway of their small Brooklyn apartment that began as a joke but was legitimized after journalists began to write about it (including Rolling Stone), and then contributions arrived from all over the world.

To keep the momentum going, the duo curated a new exhibition at THNK1994, as they are now referring to the pop-up museum, currently located in a former doctor’s office space. Titled The Olsen Twins Hiding From the Paparazzi, the exhibit features paintings by Chicago-based artist Laura Collins as well as various archival items. They have now launched a Kickstarter campaign to bring the exhibit to a public space, and some of the proceeds will also sponsor the creation of a “Sia-Cycle class,” a sort of Sia-inspired conceptual art exercise bike class.

Watch the video above to see how they transformed their hallway into an exhibition space.
