Vernissages | NYC, Lush Life at Lower East Side

Lush Life is a multi-part exhibition, taking place at nine different LES galleries, opened yesterday.Lush Life is curated by Franklin Evans and Omar Lopez-Chahoud and is inspired by the homonymous novel by Richard Price. The novel narrates a fictional murder investigation taking place in the contemporary LES. The neighbourhood is also the main subject of the book, with its many interwoven social, historical and cultural layers, including the contemporary gallery art gallery scene.

Each of the nine participating galleries shows work dealing with a chapter of the book.
