IDSVA’s Director featured in two upcoming exhibitions

Dr. Simonetta Moro, IDSVA’s Director, is participating in two upcoming exhibitions.

Gathering Place

Opening reception February 22, 2013 7 – 9 pm.

The inaugural No Longer Empty Curatorial Lab (NLE LAB), a new program of the site-specific art organization No Longer Empty, is pleased to present Gathering Place, an exhibition bringing together ten artists at a formerly-vacant storefront on 24 West 8th Street in Greenwich Village in New York City. The exhibition explores the street and the neighborhood’s unique history of commerce and culture, envisioning 8th Street’s rebirth as a mixed-use destination corridor, and engaging the community in critical dialogue around its future.


Contemporary Cartographies
Opening reception March 18, 2013, 6 – 8 pm

The exhibition will include a group of contemporary artists who uses the language and imagery of maps to communicate an array of ideas. Artists in this exhibition work in various styles—adapting, manipulating, and inventing maps—giving them new meanings. Some of them use fictional narratives and create imaginary cartographies; others conceive a work that updates the new geopolitical orders. Still others approach the map aesthetically or as material in itself. Humor too plays an important role in defining these borders. Curated by Susan Hoeltzel and Yuneikys Villalonga. Lehman College Art Gallery 250 Bedford Park Boulevard West, Bronx, NY.
