At Different Speeds – UA 2024 GROUP SHOW (NYC)

Curated by:  Daniela Avellar and Carolina Paz

Opening: Jun 27 (THU), from 6 to 8pm

Exhibition Dates: June 27 – July 27,  2024

Operating hours: Thursday to Saturday, 2 to 6 pm, excluding holidays, or by appointment.

The exhibition’s curatorial concept emerges from a sense of unease, probing not only the participating artists but also the context of New York City, particularly Brooklyn and the Navy Yard area. It investigates the intricate dynamics of urban movement, reflecting on how these interactions mold the cityscape, identities, and communal spaces. As an international community, Uncool Artist acts as a nexus, uniting artists from diverse backgrounds and locales, fostering connections through shared interests and expressions. With its diverse cohort of artists, Uncool Artist becomes a platform for exploring the ever-evolving social fabric and its myriad changes, allowing artists to articulate their perspectives poetically offering fresh insights to the Uncool Gallery’s audience. This inaugural exhibition of the Uncool Gallery marks a significant milestone for the Uncool Artist community, from which the gallery emerged, highlighting the interconnectedness between the artists and the space they inhabit.
