New Limited Edition Print By Lee Quinones on Exhibition A

0000979

Exhibition A has released a new, signed limited edition print by Lee Quinones.  ”Born of Many Apples” is available in two size. Each size is limited to an edition 50 prints on archival inkjet print on stretched canvas.

In what I call the Alphabet soup chronicles, many of the Avant-garde Subway art movement cut their teeth on lines stretched not only across the city, but across imaginations, variations and theoretical limitations.  I referred to this as a voluntary diaspora of young colorful minds exclaiming the host status quo and reclaiming themselves through sculptural paintings while on the run.

Lee’s work will be featured in “Looking at Music 3.0″. at Museum of Modern Art, New York City. Feb. 16 – June 6.

Looking at Music 3.0, the third in a series of exhibitions exploring the influence of music on contemporary art practices, focuses on New York in the 1980s and 1990s. In this dynamic period, imaginative forms of street art spread across the five boroughs, articulating the counter-culture tenor of the times. As the city transitioned from bankruptcy to solvency, graffiti, media, and performance artists took advantage of low rents and collaborated on ad hoc works shown in alternative spaces and underground clubs. Appropriation, also known as remixing, thrived. Approximately 70 works from a wide range of artists and musicians will be on view, including works by the Beastie Boys, Kathleen Hanna and Le Tigre, Keith Haring, Lee Quinones, Christian Marclay and  Joanie 4 Jackie, a video chain letter founded by Miranda July.
