NEW YORK, NY— Parasol Projects is proud to present its latest group exhibition featuring artists of the past forty years, who have worked, lived and inspired the city’s creative epicenter. Downtown will run through the entire month of April, with an opening reception on Thursday, April 4th from 6-9pm.
Featured artists include Andrew Poneros, Andy Warhol, Bob Gruen, Charles Lahti, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Christopher Wool, Cristian Mejia, Johnny Rozsa, Kevin Baker, Lesny JN Felix, Marcos Chin, Maripol, PJ Linden (Wonderpuss Octopus), Santiago Felipe and Scooter LaForge.
Downtown is a local examination between two generations of artists who are brought together by way of their lineage from downtown Manhattan. From Andy Warhol’s ‘Factory’ in Union Square, and Christopher Wool’s studio in Chinatown, to Lesny JN Felix in neighboring Lower East Side, a common thread has drawn this wide-ranging group of artists to be inspired by and create from their surroundings. Despite the gap in age, social circumstances or pedigree, the two schools of artists both adopt a candid vocabulary that reflects upon the eccentricities of their shared geographies. The exhibit includes a variety of media such as painting, photography, screen print, and more.
