We've Got Work to Do - Ends Wednesday!!

112 Greene Street in Soho was the original home of 112 Workshop, a raw space open between 1970 and 1980, offering exhibition space for installation and performance for the new generation of conceptual and performance artists who emerged as the Vietnam War and racism were ripping the country apart. When the economy tanked in the 1970s, taking with it most commercial infrastructive for experimental art, urban artists settled into 112 Greene Street to create their own marginal, bootstrap model. As the economy "struggles" today, NYC's best street and urban artists are doing the same, bringing112 Greene Street's spirit alive again...that while meeting President Obama's call to cultural action with their collection that adorns the space's brick walls, wood, glass, ceilings, floors, doors, and unpredictably, its walls. Curated by Royce Bannon & the Endless Love Crew and the Combine. Runs through April 16.
