La Galleria: Inside, Out Here

Curated by Eric Booker

In Inside, Out Here, multidisciplinary artists Devin N. Morris (b. 1986) and Frederick Weston (b. 1946) each draw on quotidian material and space to create highly personal works of art that explore racial and sexual identity. Sharing a sense of conceptual interiority and lived domesticity in their work, Morris and Weston construct intimate otherworldly spaces for themselves and their communities. Shown together, their work prompts an inter-generational dialogue around queer and alternative histories.

The show is produced under the following program(s):

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.
