This exhibition brings together 28 Artist using a wide range of techniques and imagery within the field of drawing, painting and collage to create a singular artistic vision. BLACK FOLIAGE takes its name from the contemporary psych rock band Olivia Tremor Control’s 1999 album Black Foliage: Animation Music Vol. One. Like the album, this exhibition combines pop and experimental aesthetics into something eccentric and cohesive.
The combined efforts from these artists will create something akin to a psychedelic zen garden in an equally bizarre exhibition space. Chinatown Arcade (formerly a cell phone dispensary within the alley at 48 Bowery) is a truly unique space recently uncovered by some of New York’s most adventurous curators.
Please join us this Sunday, July 22nd from 6-9pm for the opening reception.
BLACK FOLIAGE will be a unique New York art viewing experience not to be missed.

Flow through the fields of time
But When you pass the black foliage
You can always change your mind"
