CUCHIFRITOS is pleased to announce Dust to Settle, an exhibition that opens as part of the New Museum’s Festival of Ideas for the New City, May 4-8, 2011, a major new collaborative initiative in New York involving scores of Downtown organizations working together to harness the power of the creative community to imagine the future city and explore ideas that will shape it. The Festival will include a three-day slate of symposia; an innovative StreetFest along the Bowery; and over eighty independent projects and public events. For more information, visit festivalofideasnyc.com.
The curators concept for Dust to Settle was inspired by Cuchifritos’ unique gallery location in the Essex Street Market which makes it easy to imagine the gallery space as an unknown part of the market that was just uncovered and revealed from an undetermined past—an ambiguous archeological site or time capsule. The exhibition working with this premise, will create a somewhat open-ended and poetic theme.
