Symbolizing good luck and prosperity, the exchange of red envelopes is a beloved Lunar New Year tradition present in even the oldest stories about this celebration. To ring in the year of the dragon, Harman Projects is excited to host the 9th annual Red Envelope Show curated by Grumpy Bert. In the spirit of sharing this New Year’s practice widely, the exhibition features works from over 100 artists from around the world who work in a variety of mediums spanning ink, marker, pencil, gouache, acrylic, and even rocks. From hair-rising dragons to “chonky” dragons to Dragon Ball, each artist uses the red paper envelope to share something inventive and certainly fortunate.
Red Envelope Show opens February 10th at 54 Ludlow street with a reception 6-8 pm, many of the artists will be in attendance. A Lion Dance will take place outside the gallery at 6:30 pm.
