“The Crystal Palace”
Rachel Uffner Gallery, 170 Suffolk St., NYC
“Named after the site of the first World’s Fair in London in 1851, and on the 50th Anniversary of the 1964 New York World’s Fair, this exhibition aims to take advantage of New York City’s cultural and neighborhood-based diversity in the cacophonous spirit of the Fair, which evolved from focusing on industrialized innovation to a thematic form of cultural exchange.
In an attempt to infuse the growing contemporary art district of the Lower East Side with the historical weight of Upper East Side institutions, Rachel Uffner Gallery will exhibit artwork from the vast archives of Richard L. Feigen & Co., and additional private lenders and estates, in conjunction with contemporary artists conversing with their fore-bearers in a thoughtful manner. A cross-cultural-pollination is to be formed, spanning over neighborhoods and over time.”
