I am participating in an interesting group exhibition in Lower East Side of New York City this summer. Please come by when you are in the area.
Opening Reception: Friday, June 28, 6-9pm
Open from June 28 through July 28
Curated by Keith Schweitzer and Jason Patrick Voegele
America has always been an amalgamation of immigrants who arrived here either yearning for a new life or thrust by circumstance into providence. For hundreds of years immigrants from every reach of the globe have passed through New York harbor to settle into new lives far from home. Along these generations have come the standard bearers of culture. These are the artists and musicians and poets from every continent putting into words and images their personal re-conceptualizations of what is home and what is foreign, what is progress and what is tradition.
So, what does the voice of this generation have to say for itself? What is it about the contemporary American experience that captures the imagination of today’s foreign-born and first generation artists? This summer Republic Worldwide picks up the flag in search of answers through the work of seventeen contemporary artists from around the globe.
