Matt Ravenstahl has a show opening at Meat Market Gallery this Friday, June 15th.

Like me, Matt got his MFA from the University of Maryland, College Park.

Things I remember about Matt's work: A room with green indoor/outdoor carpeting and sky blue walls; in the middle sat a huge pile of burnt cheese sandwiches.

A piece in which he slowly asphyxiated himself with a motorized lift and a chain.

A thesis show in which he received a full--well, almost full--body wax while eating a steak dinner.

I suspect that whatever he's showing at Meat Market, it'll be entertaining.
