Event Details

SEPTEMBER, 2015 (NEW YORK, NY) – The Galleries at The Interchurch Center presents art of the 5: we’ll take manhattan. This year and next, New Yorkers and visitors will be able to view a select number of professional and emerging artists from the boroughs of Manhattan and Staten Island through its remaining annual exhibitions, art of the 5. The borough exhibitions highlighting the Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn took place in 2012, 2013 and 2014, respectively.

art of the 5: we’ll take manhattan continues the series from September 14 through October 30, 2015, featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, mixed media and installations by eleven Manhattan-based artists, representing a mix of nationalities, race, gender, sexual orientations and different degrees of fame and recognition.

The artists featured in art of the 5: we’ll take manhattan are Nadema Agard, Pena Bonita, Antonia Guerrero, Zhen Guo, Joe Overstreet, Susan Rostow, Coreen Simpson, TAFA, Ezequiel Taveras, Tesfaye Tessema and Michael Kelly Williams.

“That this is not a thematic show is intentional,” notes Guest Curator, Debra Vanderburg Spencer,” as it encompasses each artist’s individual practice rather than looking for links between them. The selected works demonstrate the breadth and complexity of their output over many years and highlights their fascination with the construction and creation of images”.

Complementing the exhibition will be a series of special events, including guided tours and programs for young students.
