galería perdida: No Matter How Much You Push The Envelope, It’ll Still Be Stationery

galería perdida, an art collective from Michoacan, is having a show at Abrons Arts Center with an opening reception this Wednesday from 6 to 8pm. They aim to shake up the artistic structure and have turned the arts center into a booth-like installation with sculptures, photographs and videos. Supposedly a donkey is involved in this alternative exhibition format. However, it’s unclear if it’s an actual live donkey or a simulation. Don’t wait to find out after the fact! Come Wednesday and see the work being created by the interesting collaborative art group galería perdida.
