Assembly Room presents its first birthday with Interior Landscapes, a summer group show curated by the co-founders of Assembly Room.

One year ago in August 2018, we picked up the keys to our Henry Street space, and on a crisp fall evening, we opened the doors to Assembly Room. Since that very first month, we have proudly collaborated with 12 curators and partnered with Manny Cantor Center, Seward Public Library, Art Table, NADA, Collecteurs, Female Design Council, Foundwork, Artfare, Artsy, and other creatives and professionals. We have presented 10 exhibitions, 10 performances, and hosted 20 professional gatherings.

This year has been a testament to the significance and vitality of growing our community. We are grateful to the curators we serve and the artists who inspire us. Thank you, everyone! We are especially thankful to artist Austin Thomas and our amazing neighbors: Manny Cantor Center, Seward Public Library, Shrine, Sargent‘s Daughters, Kristen Lorello, NADA, Les Enfants de Boheme, Cafe Petisco, for welcoming us to the block.

We are celebrating with a summer group show of 10 artists working with themes of reconnection. Interior Landscapes speaks to our immigrant roots and to living in a multicultural city. We are presenting artists who, like ourselves, came from another country and have made NYC home. We are honored to present Eve Ackroyd, Blanka Amezkua, Shay Arick, Chioma Ebinama, Annette Hur, Kaveri Raina, Alessandro Teoldi, Keiko Narahashi, Chang Yuchen, Maya Varadaraj.

Navigating the familiar dichotomies of their native land and adopted land of America, their work is part of a rich web of new communities, political intrigues, and cultural exchanges. The artists in the show respond to questions of identity, trauma, displacement, dualities, faultiness, and fractures within the culture. However, through their artwork, create new vocabularies and forms of communication that have the potential to transcend cultural gaps.

In keeping with this theme, we are delighted to announce our partnership with The Immigrant Artist Biennial. We are hosting three performance events curated by Katya Grokhovsky to raise funds for the inaugural edition. Please join us in supporting a community which welcomes all by attending these events!
