Lower East Side Conversion: History & Innovation

120.00

Join us downtown as we travel through time to explore the Milton Resnick and Pat Passlof Foundation. From tenement, to synagogue, to Resnick’s studio, the newly renovated building preserves many physical traces of its multi-layered history. On view for our visit will be work by Passlof, Resnick’s wife and an American abstract expressionist painter in her own standing. Geoff Dorfman, a contemporary abstract painter and biographer of Resnick and the New York School, will explain Resnick and Passlof's influence on artists today.

Just across the street at another not-for-profit organization, director Sara Shaoul will tell us about 601 ArtSpace’s more unconventional twist on the idea of artists’ foundations. Serving as a catalyst for creative encounters between the commercial and academic art worlds, 601 stages exhibitions and pursues projects that foster creative and commercial collaboration. With this innovative structure, 601 encourages cross-pollination between the artistic, curatorial and gallery worlds and supports artists who have not yet found professional homes elsewhere with public shows and critical exposure.
