New York - Ndr Nw Mgmt is pleased to present Hello It’s Me, featuring new work by emerging artists Alice Teeple, Anthony Fatato, Arthur Kwon Lee, Future Ancient, Jameel Newkirk, Jane Dorsey, John Romano, Jordana Pontes, Katherine Kane, Katie Mangurian, Kerry Karrier, Lacy Barry, Leaf, Miyuki Asakawa, Spirit, Stephen Frank, Theda Sandiford and Undine Bandelin. The multidisciplinary exhibition includes drawing, painting, photography, sculpture and video and will be the first show for a number of the artists included in the show.
The exhibition title is a cross between the literal translation of itself, introducing many of the artists to the art world and a metaphorical “Hello” from our city of New York as she returns to some semblance of normalcy in this month of July.
I remember walking down the streets of my neighborhood in Brooklyn one late Friday evening at the height of the pandemic, and for that 20 minute escape from my apartment I did not see one vehicle driving down the street or another human being to interact with. It saddened me as I realized that this once vibrant city that the rest of the world often looked to for inspiration was, in essence, “dead” by all accounts. Over the next few months (and what would turn out to be another year), we learned that so many of our favorite local haunts would not be returning ever again, and I am sure that I was not alone in wondering if and/or when life would return to normal.
Hello It’s Me celebrates our grand city of New York being reborn; the city we once knew is gone, but out of the ashes of the pandemic a new, New York City is emerging, with new faces and spaces, each with a new lease on life (no pun intended). This will be the first iteration of Ndr Nw Mgmt’s annual summer show. We look forward to you joining us.
Hello It’s Me will run at Ed. Varie from 20 July through 07 August, 2021. The opening reception will be held on Tuesday, 20 July from 6-9pm at Ed. Varie, 184 East 7th Street, New York, NY 10009..
