FIRST WE TAKE MANHATTAN
Ethan Cohen Gallery is delighted to present FIRST WE TAKE MANHATTAN, a group exhibition, curated by Isaac Aden. Aden organized First We Take Manhattan; a group exhibition based on the internationalist agenda of Leonard Cohen. By conflating the predetermined roles of “artist” and “curator,” Aden questions the limits of both. Rather than looking to overarching aesthetic or theoretical relationships, the selection process has been based on individual relationships between each work, on a one to one basis. The artists, Joseph Ayers, Jeff Conefry, Chajana denHarder, Nick Farhi, Derek Fordjour, Jeffrey S. Hargrave, Elektra KB, Andrew McNay, Irvin Morazan, Martin Roth, Gabriel J. Shuldiner and Wei Xiaoguang, create a thread, which makes connections both cognitive and sensorial.
