How it looks to be you in Egyptian Cotton
For their second exhibition, 214 Projects will present “How it looks to be you in Egyptian Cotton,” curated by Adrianna Cole. Opening on July 20th, this group exhibition will explore concepts of the personae and identity through distorted renderings of the human figure. Painting, sculpture and mixed media works by various artists, including Miriam Cahn, Oshay Green and Calvin Marcus are presented in the galleries among domestic objects that activate the space as an installation. Rounding out the exhibition is a video installation by Shelby David Meier.
OPENING RECEPTION: SATURDAY, JULY 20, 6 - 9 PM
