> DESCRIPTION

Just three miles southeast of Chelsea, the Lower East Side is recognized, both in the cultural landscape of New York and internationally, as an important epicenter for contemporary art. Offering an altogether different perspective and tenor than FLAG's immediate neighborhood of Chelsea, the LES has become renowned for supporting emerging artists and mounting experimental exhibitions. Carving out its own voice, the galleries in the LES occupy former tenements, industrial spaces, and storefronts, adding significant content and context to the discourse surrounding contemporary art. East Side to the West Side offers an opportunity to bridge the physical distance between these two distinct districts, celebrating the diversity inherent to New York's artistic community. 

East Side to the West Side highlights artists from the rosters of three distinctive and influential LES programs - Brennan & Griffin, James Fuentes, and Rachel Uffner - providing each gallery with its own show within a show. The artists in this exhibition represent a variety of backgrounds and creative practices. Brennan & Griffin presents Heather Guertin, Naotaka Hiro, and Dave McDermott, artists whose work examines figuration and the body, each engaging with art history while evincing a singular artistic position. James Fuentes presents a new series of paintings by Benjamin Senior and Michele Tocca that are collaborative in spirit, exploring the artists' interest in nineteenth and twentieth century French landscape painting, perception and representation, and the materiality of paint. Rachel Uffner presents a selection of gallery artists including the work of Bianca Beck, Joanne Greenbaum, Hilary Harnischfeger, Anya Kielar, Sam Moyer, and Sara Greenberger Rafferty, showcasing a myriad of formal approaches to painting and sculpture.
