Intersection 2016- October 21 – November 17
Intersection features work by artists that have studios located at 31 Central Avenue in Newark. 31 Central has been occupied by artists and creatives for more than three decades, helping to establish an emerging arts community in the Halsey Street area and Downtown Newark. Intersection will also feature works by artists that have studios at 237 Washington Street – Index Art Center’s new location after a fire displaced the organization in 2013. Intersection was originally conceived of in 2011 as an annual exhibition to highlight artists that had been working at Index’s old location (585 Broad St.) and at 31 Central Ave. during Newark Open Doors. This exhibition follows suit, curated by Lowell Eugene Craig, co-founder of IAC and a studio resident at 31 Central.
There will be a parallel exhibition curated by Anonda Bell at Rutgers University located at the Robeson Campus Center Gallery (opening September 6 and closes December 22, 2016. Reception Thursday September 22, 5pm – 7pm)
