FINAL SHOW AT ABC NO RIO?
Remember ABC No Rio, the Lower East Side collective and exhibition space that got its start by taking over a long-vacant Delancey Street storefront and mounting the "Real Estate Show" in 1980? Well, the ABC No Rio tenement at 156 Rivington Street is about to be disassembled, brick-by-brick -- to prepare the way for the construction of a new $4.5 million "green" art facility on the site.
In the meantime, ABC No Rio is mounting its final building-wide exhibition, "ABC No Rio’s Ides of March," Mar. 19-Apr. 9, 2002, featuring works by 50 artists on all four floors. Participants range from Cesar Arredondo, Fabian Berenbau, Doris Cacoilo and Kevin Caplicki to Vydavy Sindikat, Carol Warner and the Z Collective -- as well a handful of the original founders, including Rebecca Howland and Alan Moore.
this feature gallery artist went to peru and studied/ingested ayahuasca, and did this body of work
"Long has Jesse Bransford been gleaning archaic and peripheral cultures for their icons, signs, and remnants of their deep, in search of being privy to the cosmic passage of the essence that endures, and sharing it. One such recent investigation has been that of the psychotropic ayahuasca experience as guided by Norma, an Amazonian curandero (healer, shaman). The culture, plant(s) and their properties, as well as the experiences and its repercussions are chronicled in these recent works on paper."
I like his older wook too as I love the old books on Alchemy
