The Elizabeth Dee Gallery will be debuting it’s newest initiative this weekend. Entitled Selections, the exhibition series is all about shining a much-needed light on emerging artists. Works included in Selections are chosen by esteemed curators, who are actively engaged with the up and coming artistic voices shaping our society. Elizabeth Dee has tapped culturally influential curator Larry Ossei-Mensah to organize the inaugural edition of Selections, which will be open to the public starting Saturday, January 21st from 5-8PM.
The inaugural installment of Selections features the work of four artists based in Harlem and the South Bronx: Derek Fordjour, Emily Henretta, Lucia Hierro and Kenny Rivero.
Ossei-Mensah has selected a group of artists whose rigorous approach to experimentation pushes the boundaries of their practice in response to a continuously shifting landscape that challenges tradition and is ripe with possibilities. Via a creative lens that explores a myriad of topics from the autobiographical to environmental, these artists’ inquisitive approach to their practice results in work that spans a broad range of mediums, such as felt, works on paper, sculpture and collage.
The Elizabeth Dee Gallery is located at 2037 Fifth Avenue.
