NEW YORK, NY — ALL | TOGETHER | DIFFERENT, a survey of current Lower East Side artists steadfastly engaged with the forever-changing and forever-the-same neighborhood, will be on view at the Ernest Rubenstein and Jewish Communal Galleries at the Manny Cantor Center at 197 East Broadway from February 12-April 1, 2015. With work dating from 1982-2015, the exhibition brings together nearly 100 Lower East Side artists and arts organizations actively working in the community. ALL | TOGETHER | DIFFERENT, a project of the Educational Alliance Art School at Manny Cantor Center, will open with a reception on Thursday, February 12 from 7-9 p.m., featuring remarks at 7:30 p.m. by Harold Koda, Curator in Charge, the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and member of the Board of Directors of the Educational Alliance, and Tom Finkelpearl, Commissioner of New York City’s Department of Cultural Affairs.

Curated by Linda Griggs with curatorial advisor Yona Verwer, ALL | TOGETHER | DIFFERENT will present paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, prints, installation, and video from artists aged 29 to 92, including Kiki Smith, Roger Welch, Richard Hambleton, Kim Keever, Kembra Pfahler, Rick Prol, Jim Radakovich, Anton Van Dalen, Marc Kehoe, David Sandlin, Judith Simonian, and Susannah Coffey.

“We are excited to bring together the artists and organizations of the Lower East Side with work that ranges from minimalism to radical archiving, by those who set the tone for expressive freedom and the subsequent arrivals who inherited a culture that was unique to the area,” said Linda Griggs. “Although we lost many neighborhood artists to the AIDS epidemic, to drugs, and to rising rents, many stayed, fought for tenant rights for themselves and their neighbors, created communities, kept the spirit and attracted the next wave of artists who inherited the disjointed, yet allied individuality.”

The exhibition will be held on the occasion of the grand re-opening of the historic Educational Alliance Art School at the Manny Cantor Center, a cultural and community Center on the Lower East Side, following a building-wide renovation. The school, has offered high-quality instruction in the visual since its inception in 1917. Today, the Art School provides opportunities for creative expression, skill acquisition, and arts appreciation through a range of studio art classes, workshops and programs for people of all backgrounds and skill levels.

“For artists, the Lower East Side has always been a neighborhood where you could do as you pleased – with your art, with your life. This show pays tribute to the countless artists who have made and continue to make the Lower East Side an epicenter of creativity and of art,” said Emily Aldredge, Director of the Educational Alliance Art School.
