La Galleria: Universal Language

May 10 - May 26, 2018


La MaMa Galleria | 47 Great Jones Street

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

By Matt Colagiuri

Opening Reception: Thursday, May 10th | 6PM - 8PM

Universal Language is the first comprehensive exhibition of sculptural photography work by Matt Colagiuri. Colagiuri’s work presents photographic images mounted on backgrounds of varying heights to weave a narrative that is as complex and revealing as his innovative technique. For this exhibition, the artist explores the subject of love and how it is manifests in many different forms - playful, nostalgic, passionate, even unrequited - to encompass the countless facets of contemporary life.

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.
