ABC No Rio is pleased to present RESx, organized by members of the artists’ group
Colab. Complementing an exhibition at James Fuentes Gallery of original work from the Real Estate
Show of 1980, artists involved in that seminal exhibition are also organizing events and activities at
Cuchifritos in the Essex Street Market as well as this exhibition at ABC No Rio. RESx will be feature
new work on the themes of real estate, land-use, and the right to housing.
The original Real Estate Show opened on New Year’s Eve, 1979 at 123 Delancey, now part of the
proposed massive Essex Crossing development. The Real Estate Show led the creation of ABC No Rio.
