Watch Results Roll In From Galleries on the Lower East Side and in Brooklyn
"Despite the drastic implications of today’s U.S. presidential election for the art world, only a few of galleries — at least that we know of — will be holding results parties: Broome Street non-profit White Box, the new Bruce High Quality Foundation University in the East Village, Bushwick’s Grace Exhibition Space, and Williamsburg stand-bys Front Room Gallery and City Reliquary. Both spaces, appropriately, are also featuring election-themed exhibitions, which attendees can peruse while the votes roll in.Front Room is currently presenting its third quadrennial exhibition, “The Ballot Show,” boasting works by some 40 artists responding to the U.S.’s arcane electoral college system, and the country’s voting culture. The Roebling Street gallery “will be presenting live coverage as polls close on election night,” according to its event page for the party, which starts at 8pm and goes until a winner emerges.Nearby, City Reliquary will hold its “Election Night Circus” from 7pm onwards, with an affordable $5 admission charge that goes entirely to Sandy relief efforts.Further into Brooklyn, Grace Exhibition Space has a huge night of performance art planned alongside its live election coverage. Its 7pm-midnight Election Might party, with a $10 suggested donation, boasts some 20 participating performance artists.Meanwhile, on the Lower East Side, White Box will be holding an opening reception from 6pm to midnight for “AmeriKKKa the Beautiful,” an exhibition curated by Raul Zamudio, organized by Juan Puntes, and featuring works by more than two dozen artists, which will double as an election results party.And a few blocks up and over at 34 Avenue A, the artist collective Bruce High Quality Foundation will be throwing an election night party at BHQFU from “8pm till dawn,” per a Facebook post this afternoon.” - Benjamin Sutton, ARTINFO
