February 17 – March 20, 2011
La Mama Galleria is proud to present an exhibition and survey of Day Gleeson’s work, which directly adresses the formal and conceptual metamorphoses of the Lower East Side and East Village neighborhoods over the decades, where the artist lives and continues to work. Gleeson is an artist who has worked collaboratively as well as on her own; her work has been shown in numerous museums and galleries over the years (including the New Museum’s “Fake” show, curated by W. Olander in 1987), and is included in such collections as MoMA’s. Day Gleeson is also a distinguished professor at the Cooper Union School of Art.
