You may have noticed that no new exhibitions have been announced here in a long while. This is a good thing. Let me explain:
Quite a while ago I came to a decision not to produce shows at the White Rabbit after the end of 2011. While the venue has provided uncountable opportunities for Anagnorisis and the artists who have shown there in the past, it became evident that the White Rabbit’s personality, steeped in Street Art and Lower East Side history, was not fitting well with Anagnorisis’ dark explorations of the grotesque.
Anagnorisis is currently in the midst of planning new shows which will take place less often throughout the year and in new places. You may have noticed that I’m blogging on other sites and am helping artists expand their horizons in various ways. It is my hope that this slower pace will allow for more in-depth events and projects that can allow Anagnorisis to grow. More news on that to come.
I’m excited to announce that taking over the arts program at the White Rabbit is 2 Feet 12 Inches, a partnership of art enthusiasts who have been rooted in the Lower East Side for many years longer than I have. If you’re a fan of Street Art, Lowbrow and Graf, these upcoming shows are sure to knock your socks off.
It’s fantastic to see the arts at the White Rabbit be taken over by such competent folks. Hope to see you at their first opening on May 2nd.
