Looking for art that’s not in a stuffy gallery setting? We’ve got just the thing. Tonight check out Block Party, a one night tour of apartment exhibitions in Highland Park.
The tour consists of three exhibitions hosted by curators Kiki Johnson from Artist Curated Projects, Kate Hillseth from Young Art, and Daniel Ingroff and Paul Pescador. The apartments are in close proximity and guests can tour the three venues during the evening, like a block party. Hence the name.

Block Party will be held Friday, May 29 2009 from 6-10 pm. Locations are:

APARTMENT SHOW Curated by Kate Hillseth from Young Art

206 N. Avenue 54
DUPLEX Curated by Daniel Ingroff and Paul Pescador
Duplex features the work of Alison O’Daniel, Julia Sherman and Summer Shiffman. Working in sculpture and photography, the work of these three artists occupies shared domestic space, and hints at notions of duality.
