Alternative Histories at Exit Art
ABC No Rio is one of over 130 spaces and organizations represented in Exit Art’s Alternative Histories exhibition.
"Alternative Histories is a history of New York City alternative art spaces and projects since the 1960s… ‘Imagination is an alternative to reality, creating options that never end,’ says Papo Colo, co-founder of Exit Art… The exhibition incorporates a broad definition of the term ‘alternative space,’ and includes significant publications and artist collectives to cover a broad arc of this history – bridging neighborhoods, decades and themes.”
On Friday October 15 at 7:00pm at Exit Art former ABC No Rio Directors Jack Waters and Peter Cramer will take part in the What is Alternative? panel, along with Papo Colo, Martha Wilson (Franklin Furnace), and Bridget Finn (Cleopatra’s). Robert Storr, Dean of the Yale School of Art, moderates.
Alternative Histories runs through November 24.
