Opening Reception: Thurs, October 25th | 5pm-8pm
In Power Play, Charlotte Becket and Mary-Ann Monforton offer an exhibition of two women sculptors who pose two very different approaches to examining the human condition and questioning the status quo. Musing on expectation and futility, banality, and pathos is at play, as well as a healthy dose of humor.
La MaMa Galleria
Founded in 1984, La Galleria is a nonprofit gallery committed to nurturing experimentation in the visual arts. La Galleria encourages an active dialogue between new media, performance, the plastic and visual arts, curatorial projects, and educational initiatives. It serves the East Village community by offering diverse programming to an inter-generational audience, and expanding the parameters of a traditional gallery space. As a non-profit, La Galleria is able to provide artists and curators with unique exhibition opportunities that are largely out of reach in a commercial gallery setting.
