19 January 2017 / 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Outliers, Mavericks and Risk-takers: The Emergence and Legacy of Downtown

A program organized by the New York Foundation for the Arts

CIMA is pleased to host “Outliers, Mavericks and Risk-takers: The Emergence and Legacy of Downtown,” a panel discussion organized by the New York Foundation for the Arts and held in collaboration with the SoHo Arts Network and the Grey Art Gallery of New York University, exhibiting Inventing Downtown: Artist-Run Galleries in New York City, 1952-1965.

Taking up the story where Inventing Downtown leaves off, this panel will examine downtown’s further evolution, from the opening of commercial galleries in SoHo in the late 1960s to the emergence of the Lower East Side as a new art hub. It will also shed light on the pioneering efforts of the adventurous risk-takers who helped make downtown the epicenter of the New York art scene. Speakers will include Betty Cuningham, Betty Cuningham Gallery; Michael Findlay, Acquavella Gallery; Eric Firestone, Eric Firestone Gallery and Patricia Margarita Hernandez, P! Gallery.

Free; reservations required.

THIS EVENT IS FULLY BOOKED!
