Shifting Impressions

FEATURING CITY SOUVENIRS, A PROJECT BY LIENE BOSQUE AND NICOLE SEISLER

March 28 – April 26, 2015
Cuchifritos Gallery | 120 Essex Street NY, NY 10002 
Curated by Lynnette Miranda

Shifting Impressions consisted of three participatory walks in the Lower East Side and an exhibition that highlighted a collection of objects and tools developed from City Souvenirs, an ongoing collaborative project by artists Liene Bosquê and Nicole Seisler. Blending their mutual site-specific practices, the artists utilize the contemplative action of walking as an artmaking tool, enabling audiences to slow down and notice the small details that amount to our daily urban experience. Through the lens of the Essex Street Market and its impending redevelopment in 2018, audiences had a chance to join the artists on an expedition of the neighborhood, where they investigated the multiple histories of the Lower East Side and created impressions of forgotten or overlooked spaces. 

Curated by Lynnette Miranda, Shifting Impressions was presented at Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space in New York City from March 28 – April 26, 2015. Find out more about this exhibition at artistsallianceinc.org and make-space.net.
