Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is pleased to present Connected, a group exhibition featuring more than 20 contemporary artists from New York, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Connected brings together multidisciplinary work in the fields of painting, printmaking, drawing, and photography with the aim to create a dialogue between the practices of emerging artists on opposing coasts. The exhibition reveals the possibilities of merging disparate artistic communities on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, a centuries old magnet for cultures around the world, while also offering collectors an opportunity to discover new artists and trends from other parts of the country.

All work has been made available by the artists at affordable prices. A portion of proceeds from the sale will support Artists Alliance Inc’s continued efforts to offer exhibition opportunities and professional development to emerging and underrepresented artists.
