Meet Me at Delancey/Essex: Spoke NY
Meet Me At Delancey / Essex March 3rd - 25th, 2018 a group exhibition curated by Jennifer Rizzo
Please join us Saturday, March 3rd from 6 - 8pm for the opening reception of Meet Me At Delancey / Essex. Complimentary beverages will be served and some of the artists will be in attendance.
Spoke NYC is pleased to present Meet Me At Delancey / Essex, a group exhibition featuring over 20 artists living and working in the greater NYC area. As the local landscape continuously changes, Spoke Art recognizes the importance for the street, lowbrow, pop surrealism and new contemporary genres to have representation and an outlet to exhibit work within the community. The gallery aims to provide a cornerstone for supporters of these genres and to continue to build a sense of community within the art world in New York City. Many works are directly inspired by city life, such as Olek’s never before exhibited video from 2010 which documents her guerrilla style installation, crocheting fruit and vegetables that were then added to the produce selection at the historic Essex Street Market. Alternatively, Luke O’Sullivan’s architecturally inspired sculpture depicts imaginary structures and their underground landscape. About the exhibition, curator Jennifer Rizzo states, “Meet Me At Delancey / Essex is a celebration of community, in every sense of the word - by bringing together both emerging and established artists as well as being a physical hub for creative exchange, my hope is that SPOKE NYC becomes the go to destination for the lowbrow and new contemporary genres.”
