This event has ended.

Rick Prol’s work exemplifies and helped define with “anarchical impudence” the more dangerous and harrowing aspects of urban reality with images both horrific and absurd, with a touch of humor. Prol’s aesthetic employs Art Brut Expressionism to convey images of human folly and suffering in a variety of media including the drawings and paintings in this exhibition.

James Romberger is a fine artist and cartoonist who lives and works in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. In the mid-1980s, he was co-founder of the seminal East Village installation gallery Ground Zero. “Post York,” his multimedia comic book/flexidisc collaboration with his son Crosby for Uncivilized Books was nominated for an Eisner award in 2013, a year that also saw a revised edition of the critically acclaimed graphic novel “Seven Miles A Second,” Romberger’s collaboration with Marguerite Van Cook and the late David Wojnarowicz published by Fantagraphics Books.
