EXHIBITIONS CLOSING + ADIEU BUSHWICK RECEPTION
Saturday, June 22, 6-9PM
56 Bogart Street, Fl. 1
SOHO20 is pleased to host a closing reception of its current exhibitions on view, with work by Zalika Azim, Darla Bjork, and Nancy Rodrigo, as well as a celebratory Farewell to Bushwick.
As announced last week, SOHO20 will be leaving the neighborhood, and entering a temporary hiatus to anticipate directional shifts. We’re grateful to everyone who’s been with us on this present journey, and excited to launch into the next era! To read the full “Farewell to Bushwick” announcement, please find it here.
Join us in celebrating with mixed drinks, vagina cakes by Bklyn Cake Studio inspired by their 2017 “Homage to Judy Chicago,” and a video screening by 2019 Rethinking Feminism artist Katie Giritlian.
Giritlian’s aptly titled video, “the end of the story is an object that she can hold—(whispers, “get ready girls, we’ll be beginning again at dawn, soon.”) (2017), will be on a looped screening throughout the evening. As with much of her work, Giritlian, who led a performative workshop in January as a 2019 Rethinking Feminism program, explores the semantics of nostalgia, archiving, and cultural messaging, through a feminist lens.
This event will take place after our third collaborative 2019 Rethinking Feminism panel discussion with A.I.R. Gallery, Art Criticism & Agendas: Specific Language & Relative Positions, moderated by 2019 Rethinking Feminism Curatorial Fellow Mira Dayal, from 3-5PM. We encourage those of you who would like to attend both events to get dinner or a drink nearby, in the space between these. For more information on the panel, visit our Rethinking Feminism page.
For their generous support of this event, a special thanks extends to Bklyn Cake Studio, Lagunitas Brewery, Nana Olivas, Janice Pullicino, and Nancy Rodrigo.
