Framing the Village | Identity
Art Exhibition: September 5 – 28, 2024

Moshava Art
45 W 8th Street, Second Floor
New York, NY 10011

Call for Entries for a group exhibition of paintings, drawings, and photography on the theme of Identity. How has the Village/ East Village formed you, shaped your identity? How has this fabled part of NYC inspired you to be who you are? How have the people, the artists and art, music and musicians, poets, writers and their work, schools, architecture, street life, parties, clubs and food shaped your attitudes, your intellect, the way you dress, speak and behave? How have all (or some) of these elements informed your own work?

Again, all mediums are welcome—video, painting, drawing, photography, small sculpture. Tell us who you are!

Part of The Village Trip festival of arts and activism, this exhibition is curated by long-time Village artist Marc Kehoe.

Entry is open to all artists who have a connection to Greenwich Village or the East Village/Lower East Side, having lived or worked in these neighborhoods at some point in their lives.
