Galleria: Introductions

20160317 - 20160410

La MaMa Galleria | 47 Great Jones St.

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

La MaMa Galleria is pleased to present Introductions, curated by New York-based painter Roberto Juarez.
For this exhibition, Juarez and eight of his colleagues will each introduce an artist of their choosing to the gallery. The show focuses on visual and spatial conversations between artists working at different stages of their careers, and through this contrast mixes genres and ideas. Some of the artist pairs are in close dialogue with one another, and they present their work with this relationship in mind. Others have chosen to make work that stands on its own. Through the show’s hanging, Juarez encourages new and surprising associations within this artistic community to emerge.

Introductions comprises eighteen artists:
John Ahearn → Devon Rodriguez
Robert Bordo → Jared Buckhiester
Jane Dickson → Charlotte Becket
Inka Essenhigh → Ali Miller
Michael Glier → Derek Stroup
Roberto Juarez → Nic Freberg Morgan
Jack Pierson → Bradford Teasdale
Kiki Smith → Angela Conant
Barbara Takenaga → Beverly Acha

Introductions opens on March 17th from 6-8 PM, and runs through April 10th. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Sunday, 1-7 PM, or by appointment. OnApril 2nd from 5-7 PM, there will be a screening and reading featuring works by Jared Buckhiester, Angela Conant, Nic Freberg Morgan, and Derek Stroup.
