MARISOL: Sculptures and Works on Paper

Attention art lovers! Marisol opens to the public October 9th and will be on view through January 10, 2015. This is Marisol’s first retrospective of her artistic career, yet she has been creating art since the early 1950s. Marisol is a very interest character– one who dropped her last name in an act of rebellion against patrilineal identity and was a good friend of Andy Warhol. The show consists of both her works on paper and sculptures, which are a combination of found objects and bronze casting. You can also get tickets to the show by becoming a supporting member of Museo del Barrio. Just e-mail to get set up. Hope to see you there!

Right to Remain: Resisting Community Displacement in NYC

This photo exhibit features work that is a mix of portraiture and documentary prints showing who and how people are getting displaced from the communities they’ve long inhabited. This photo show features the varied communities, particularly communities of color, that are affected by gentrification, predatory police tactics, the prison industrial complex, deportation and environmental hazards. The gallery space is located where the graffiti mecca 5 Pointz previously used to exist in Long Island City. You can see it Wednesday through Saturday 1pm-7pm until October 19th.
