How many exhibition works:
Opening Reception, Root Systems: Artist Collectives in NYC -- ABC No Rio, Amos Eno Gallery, Culture Push and SEQAA
"Root Systems: Artist Collectives in NYC" examines the enduring legacy of grassroots artist-run collectives through a survey of marketing collateral, posters, fine art and oral and written histories documenting each organization’s unique imprint in the New York alongside contemporary artworks from artist members of these organizations.
We invite you to the opening reception of this two-week exhibit, taking place on Friday, July 15th from 6-8 PM. The exhibition highlights the efforts of four NYC-based artist collectives: Amos Eno Gallery, ABC No Rio, Southeast Queens Artist Alliance and Culture Push. Each collective will have a space in the gallery to present their mission, values and artist members' studio practice in a manner that is meaningful to their own imprint on the past and dialogue with the present as we move toward a resilient future for artist communities based in New York City’s five boroughs.
Visitors to the exhibition will encounter materials from the 1970s until today which offer insights into the rich experiences that artist-run spaces and initiatives have contributed to the wider cultural landscape in New York City.
