Exhibition:
"Urban Encounters"
Date
July 16 - September 20 1998
Description
Urban Encounters This exhibition traced the political activism and artistic production of six artists' collectives: the Guerrilla Girls, ABC No Rio, Godzilla, REPOhistory, Bullet Space, and World War III, all of which have shaped the history of activist art on the Lower East Side of Manhattan since the early 1980s. Installations, including an information kiosk with an interactive historical database, a street shack plastered with posters and graphics, and a documentary video featuring interviews of activist group members, examined the collectives' legacies in light of the neighborhood's current political and aesthetic realities. This exhibition was organized by Gregory Sholette.
