. . an exhibition that I curated with two of my closest friends opens tonight. We were lucky enough to get full control (!!) over a disused retail space in the neighborhood in which we grew up.
I HOPE YOU ALL CAN MAKE IT.
from the press release:
have curated an exhibition that represents perspectives not often championed by the art world, presented in a disused retail space that still holds vestiges of its history. On December 28, paintings, installations, photographs, videos, sculptures and live performances will be on display for ONE week before the interior is demolished and becomes corporate office space.
The participants’ diversity is a piece in itself – works will be shown from artists of all ages and backgrounds: some contributors have gallery representation, while others have never formally engaged with the art world before. This unprecedented collaboration is possible because the gutted tri-level space on 15 Warren Street was provided for free just before its renovation. By holding the show in 15 Warren, the curators and participants seek to create an environment where art is divorced from financial market-pressures.
Participants had a week to confirm their involvement, then another two to create before installation. Because 15 Warren offers a rare opportunity for artists to experiment without the pressure of making a sale, the curators encouraged participants to challenge themselves and use a medium they had never worked in or shown before.
An emerging voice in the NEW YORK art world, artist and first-time curator . . .
SEAN VEGEZZI highlights the importance of this opportunity:
“I know how difficult it is to find safe places for self-inquiry in New York; I’ve always worked hard to find them – with or without permission. We finally get the chance to create our own and it’s been interesting to see what people do when they’re free of financial and social pressure.”
“We’re creating an exhibition that will stop people from writing off NEW YORK in an obituary.”
amen . . . !!
for sure, this IS one art party . . . that GONNA ROCK !!!!!!!
talk about a . . . POP-UP !!!!!!
damn, we gonna be lucky if that little west side ‘bite’ of the Big Apple / island doesn’t rock and roll . . and tip over all of Manhattan . . .
into the Hudson river.
yeah, that good.
F R O M . . . THE A R T L O V E R S ARCHIVE:
yeah, THE SWEETEST, TOUGHEST SHOW on the FACE of the EARTH !!
