September 2010 - "Alternative Histories" at Exit Art
Exit Art has announced their upcoming exhibition Alternative Histories, a history of New York City alternative art spaces and projects since the 1960s.
Through audio interviews, a reading room of magazines and publications, documentation, ephemera and narrative descriptions, the exhibition will tell the story of over 130 spaces, elaborating on the significant contributions that these organizations have made to the cultural fabric of New York City. They gave visibility and inclusion to otherwise excluded artists and ideas. The idealism of the founders, the hard work and dedication of everyone involved in sustaining these histories, against all odds, illustrates the dynamic purposes that continue to propel the artistic scene in New York.
September 24 – November 24, 2010
Opening Friday, September 24 / 7-9pm
