As part of the exhibition, The Extraordinary, Hunter East Harlem Gallery presents ~ 01 Magazine Launch Party & Gallery Cubed Opening Reception ~ Thursday, February 6, 2020 from 6:30-8:30pm.
The Extraordinary is a group show of eight artists who are currently in the process of gaining, or currently possess an O-1 Non-immigrant Visa: Individuals with Extraordinary Ability or Achievement. The exhibition seeks to bring transparency to the immigration process and at the same time, inspect the system, which requires those selected to have “distinction” and be “renowned” in the arts—a subjective and complicated qualification.
Editor and creator of O1 Magazine, Jenny Hung will launch the third version of her serial publication dedicated to the foreign and the familiar. The magazine features works by foreign-born artists living in the US, many of whom have struggled with the complexities and stresses of the O-1 application.
In addition, opening of Gallery Cubed: NEA: Part VI.
01 Magazine Launch Party, free public program of the exhibition, The Extraordinary, will be held on Thursday, February 6th from 6:30-8:30pm at Hunter East Harlem Gallery, 2180 Third Avenue, enter on 119th Street, in East Harlem, NYC.
