LESP Spring Exhibition- The Lives of Forms

The Lower East Side Printshop is proud to present
The Lives of Forms
Curated by Ksenia Nouril
Exhibition on view May 26th - August 26th
Exhibition opening May 26th from 6-8pm at the printshop

This exhibition meditates on the tensions between figurative and abstract forms in the works of ten contemporary printmakers. The artists featured cull their forms from a variety of sources—from newspapers and magazines to high school yearbooks and personal archives. Old and new, popular and erudite, anonymous and recognizable, the multifarious forms that populate these works tell stories that have both local and global reach.
