FACTION Art Projects’ “Harlem Perspectives II” In Harlem

February 1, 2019

Harlem Perspectives II is co-curated by Leanne Stella (of Art In FLUX and The Gastiaburo + Stella Team) and showcases an eclectic mix of artists who live and work above Manhattan’s 110th Street in Harlem, NY. This year’s edition of Harlem Perspectives will present works by seven artists who deconstruct history through their process of art-making. With their hands, a brush, or through a lens, the artists investigate, manipulate and work materials and objects that are charged with a personal and/or political narrative. While teasing, tearing and appropriating materials, the artists examine the cultural values and historical significance placed on the objects or subjects in their work. The resulting works define a new narrative revealing how the artists may find reconciliation or antipathy through the process and prompting the viewer to question preconceived notions and beliefs.

Artists: Patrick Alston, Elan Cadiz, Coby Kennedy, Ruhee Maknojia, Tammy Nguyen, David C. Terry, and Kennedy Yanko
