Last Friday at Exit Art

255Canal at ExitArt Gallery – Opening this Friday, September 24th, 7-9pm

Alternative Histories, a history of NYC alternative art spaces since the 1960s. 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. Archives and personal collections from the histories of the spaces and projects will be put on view to construct a narrative about the alternative space movement in New York and its continuing impact on the city’s cultural and artistic landscape.

Thank you all for your ongoing support. We hope to see you there.
