From the Curator: I conceived of this ART EXHIBITION and SALE as an opportunity to support one of New York's most precious resources...A Gathering of the Tribes..."Tribes is an historical (20 years) arts and literary salon,a gem here on the Lower East Side,dedicated to an diverse view and eclectic presentation of music,visual art,poetry,prose,performance and so much more... As an arch conceptualist I dreamed of an installation that would bring together the best of our kind with a body of works which would represent 30 to 35 years of art and culture making in New York City and its greater environs,art and the artists who have literally changed and will change the way we look at and think and hear the world. So here it is "A STARTER KIT FOR COLLECTORS"... If one astute or smart or savvy or forward thinking individual, institution or group would recognize and purchase the show as a compendium of that 30 to 35 years they would indeed possess the representation of one of the most significant eras of human development of understanding and the human interface generated by that understanding that art from this nerve center we call NYC, creates for the good and in its turn turn generates more...and what is more-will,by that purchase,in turn support a astute and savvy and insightful and forward thinking organization...A GATHERING OF THE TRIBES...
