Schmalz doesn’t need other titles. Being schmalzy defies any other sort of classification. Schmalz in non-bourgeois; Schmalz is anti – Anti-Art. Schmalz is Schmaltz. Schmalz is anti-schmalz. Schmalz is nice to you and your friends. Schmalz is a space for non-negotiable differences; a manifestation of human-grain that saves us from being tabula rasaSchmalz is typing on your phone with fat fingers. Schmaltz is a show built with materials that do not need affiliations and have an elastic sense of their own materiality.
