Robyn D. Alatorre, Conception, 24 x 20 inches
First Street Gallery presents “Strange Paradise”, juried and curated by Steven Harvey, from Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects in the Lower East Side. Harvey adapts the model of the juried show towards an encyclopedic approach which will include 144 artists, culled from over 500 applicants, working in photography, painting and sculpture, abstraction and representation. Related to recent omnibus exhibitions such as Sideshow Nation and The Brucennial, the exhibition will be divided in densely organized sections including, black and white, portraits, bodies, and Strange Paradise. Taken together the chapters assess the diverse multiple realities of contemporary image making practice blurring the lines between outsider and in.
