It’s not experimental theater in an abandoned middle school or a time-traveling prom at Chicken Hut High School, but this schoolhouse-wide exhibit at the former PS 160 seems worth checking out.
The onetime Lower East Side school building, now home to the Clemente Soto Velez Cultural and Educational Center, will turn into something akin to Long Island City’s MoMA PS1, as artists affiliated with The Clemente present their works across five floors. “By placing Art throughout the building we invite you to see the space in a new way, through the eyes of twenty artists and their unique viewpoints,” The Clemente writes on Facebook. “Art is something that happens within every corner and moment in our city.”
Tonight’s reception goes from 6 to 9 p.m. Look for this installation by Nicole Parcher.
Curator Sarah Beatty also shared a photo of this work by Reese Chamness.
And this by Linda Byrne.
“There Will Be Art Here” will be on display till April, daily from 4 to 9 p.m. at 107 Suffolk Street, near Rivington Street.
Here’s the invite, so you can see who else is featured.
