A striking post-industrial space with grey cinderblock walls and a twenty five foot ceiling, on the ground floor, will be the backdrop of COPE NYC’s major exhibit, Repsychling, curated by Vida Sabbaghi, an exhibition of artists known for their use of unwanted or humble materials.
Opening night will feature a fashion show with garments made from outcast stuff from Material for the Arts. Students from the High School of Fashion Industries and Juan Morel Campos Secondary School designed and made the garments in partnership with COPE NYC. Veteran recycling artist Chin Chih Yang, who, over the past two decades, has singlehandedly amassed mountains of aluminum cans from all over New York, will carry out a performance not to be missed. Join us from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.!
