Harlem Perspectives II

FACTION Art Projects have announced their second Harlem Perspectives, an annual exhibition celebrating the local talent of Harlem and uptown New York.

Harlem Perspectives II is co-curated by Leanne Stella of Art In FLUX, and showcases an eclectic mix of local artists who live and work above Manhattan’s 110th Street.

This year’s edition of Harlem Perspectives will present works by a selection of artists who deconstruct history through their process of art making. With their hands, a brush, or through a lens, the artists investigate, manipulate and work materials and objects that are charged with a personal and/or political narrative. While teasing, tearing and appropriating materials, the artists examine the cultural values and historical significance placed on the objects or subjects in their work. The resulting works define a new narrative revealing how the artists may find reconciliation or antipathy through the process and prompting the viewer to question preconceived notions and beliefs.

Artists include Coby Kennedy, David C.Terry, Elan Cadiz, Kennedy Yanko, Patrick Alston, Ruhee Maknojia and Tammy Nguyen.

An opening reception will take place on Thursday February 7, from 6.30pm. To attend please RSVP to faction@damsonpr.com.
