DESCRIPTION


“’For Which It Stands,’ the large group show on view at the Lodge Gallery gathers drawings, paintings, video and sculpture installations by 17 artists from 13 countries. The show not only presents a wide range of expressions and media, but also displays an amalgam of cultures and viewpoints, which echo the multi-cultural offerings of NYC, or rather conjure a microcosmic image of America with an exotic flavor. The timing of the exhibition, which opened just days before America’s celebratory birthday, is not lost on its curators Jason Patrick Voegele and Keith Schweitzer.  Voegele, also a co-director of the gallery, explains that the show aims to capture the contemporary American experience of immigration and how its inherent cultural assimilation fertilizes the imagination of both foreign and American–born artists who reside here.” - Etty Yaniv
