NO CITY IS AN ISLAND

The Lodge Gallery, 131 Chrystie St., NYC

considering the works on view span a range of over 35 years, this exhibition feels coherent and contemporary. Lodge Gallery curatorial duo Keith Schweitzer & Jason Patrick Voegele invited former members of legendary NYC artist collective, Colab, to revisit their past methodologies: “Collaborative Projects Inc (Colab), focused on theme-centered exhibitions with a spirit of openness, experimentation, and minimal curatorial interference. Within this context, “No City is an Island” asked former members of Colab to respond to the exhibition’s title as a theme around which to contribute work. [The show] revisits the zeitgeist of a New York City long bygone, compares and contrasts the artists and urban realities of then with now, and honors one of the most influential art organizations in New York City’s history.” - thru May 11

artists: John Ahearn, Charlie Ahearn, Jody Culkin, Jane Dickson, Stefan Eins, Peter Fend, Coleen Fitzgibbon, Bobby G, Mike Glier, Becky Howland, Lisa Kahane, Christof Kohlhofer, Justen Ladda, Joe Lewis, Ann Messner, Richard Miller, Tom Otterness, Cara Perlman, Judy Rifka, Walter Robinson, Christy Rupp, Teri Slotkin, Kiki Smith, Seton Smith
