ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND: MISSION SCHOOL » NYU Reception

Grey Art Gallery, New York University
100 Washington Square East
Join Charles Desmarais, President; Hesse McGraw, Vice President for Exhibitions and Public Programs; Natasha Boas, Curator; and alumni for the New York reception for ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND. Desmarais, McGraw, and Boas will speak to the group at 6 pm. There will be a public reception from 7–9 pm.
Featuring early and formative work by SFAI alumni Barry McGee, Alicia McCarthy, and Ruby Neri, as well as Chris Johanson and Margaret Kilgallen—all key members of the Mission School—ENERGY THAT IS ALL AROUND has been heralded for its celebration of social art-making, community, folk art, nostalgia for the obsolete, low production values, and "street" aesthetics.
The exhibition was shown at SFAI's Walter and McBean Galleries from September 12–December 14, 2013, before traveling to the Grey Art Gallery at New York University from April 15–July 12, 2014.
