La Fabrica Gallery, 198 North 4 St. Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NYC
The opening of a trilogy of exhibitions examining the development of a group of artists considering the often non-linear relationship of cause and effect, and the tremors between space and time. Featuring work by ICP-Bard MFA 2014 graduate Aline Shlurovich, Alejandro Almanza Pereda, Gabriela Galván, Livia Corona Benjamin, Mauricio Limón, Alva CalyMayor, Rodrigo Alcocer de Garay and Adela Goldbard. This stimulating, mixed media show functions as a group conversation with each artist responding with their own memories/impressions of the 1985 earthquake which devastated Mexico City. There will be 2 more group shows with the same artists to complete the trilogy: Shock
in 2015 and Aftershock
in 2016, dates and venues TBD.
