On Site in 16 Cities, opening September 16th in Harlem, NYC

“On Site in 16 Cities”
A Group Exhibition of International Artists Curated by Nicole Cohen

Opening Reception:
Thurs., September 16, 6 – 8pm
September 16 – 20, 2015
at Cheri, 231 Lenox Ave., Harlem, New York City

This project was inspired by Jim Jarmusch’s film, “Night on Earth”, 1991.  Each artist was asked to find a location in their city that has a particular meaning to them, create a work in response to that location, photograph it in that exact place, and lastly print it in the format of 10" × 10" to give a unified look to the works as if to have a voyeur experience of peering into the space.  The individual projects are linked to 16 cities at the same time and connect the artists to their different ways of addressing their particular selection of locations.
