Curated by Matthew Craven This exhibition brings together over 60 artists using a wide range of techniques and imagery within the field of drawing, painting, collage and sculpture to create a singular artistic vision. BLACK FOLIAGE takes its name from the contemporary psych rock band Olivia Tremor Control’s 1999 album Black Foliage: Animation Music Vol. One. Like the album, this exhibition combines pop and experimental aesthetics into something eccentric and cohesive.
The combined efforts from these artists will create something akin to a psychedelic zen garden.
*Black Foliage, originally took place on a much smaller scale at Chinatown Arcade, A DIY pop up art space and formerly a cell phone dispensary within the alley at 48 Bowery in New York City on July 22nd 2012.
Please join us on the evening of September 22nd 2012 for a opening reception from 7-10pm.
