La Galleria: HA HA FRESH

February 09 - March 11, 2017

Gallery Hours: Wednesday to Sunday 1 to 7PM, or by appointment

La MaMa Galleria | 47 Great Jones St.

Free Admission

For her latest solo project with La Mama, Adriana Farmiga presents HA HA FRESH- a body of work including drawings and sculptures. The exhibition, centered around the theme of "the bodega", considers this ubiquitous urban corner shop as a site located between archive and social space. In the same way a bodega can centralize and serve a community, while simultaneously revealing its relationship with immigration and urban transitions, Farmiga's site-specific installation speaks to her own personal inventory of identity and (auto)biography.

About La Galleria

Founded in 1984, La MaMa La Galleria is a nonprofit gallery committed to nurturing artistic experimentation. La Galleria serves its neighborhood as a venue that encourages an active dialogue between the visual arts, new media, performance, curatorial and educational projects. Its focus is to offer programming that reaches beyond the expectations of traditional gallery and institutional exhibition-making, to a diverse and intergenerational audience. And as a non-profit, La Galleria is able to provide artists and curators with unique exhibition opportunities that are largely out of reach in a commercial gallery setting.
