Despite torrential downpour and poor turnout, there were some excellent exhibitions on view for the second annual LES Art Night — most of which will continue throughout the remainder of the month.
Lower East Side Galleries
The 2015 NADA New York Art Fair in 25 Superlatives
The 2015 Armory Show is barely two months cold, and already another art fair week is upon us.
The most visceral pieces in Brooklyn-based artist and activist Hunter Reynolds’ solo show Survival AIDS at Lower East Side nonprofit art space Participant Inc. are not, as one might expect, the blood splattered newspaper clippings screaming ominous headlines posted on the walls of the gallery. Rather, it’s the packing tape mummies collapsed on the floor and suspended from the walls that are the real shockers. The bodies missing from their cocoons seem to have only recently burst out, resurrected.
