Lisa Cooley‘s new Lower East Side space opened Friday night, March 16, 2012 at 107 Suffolk St after four years on Orchard Street. The inaugural show is titled Today—after the Frank O’Hara poem at the top of the press release—and promotes a participatory and communal feeling as Cooley’s full roster of artists is on display in the 4,800 sq ft, one story space. Guests were invited to sign a white canvas ‘guestbook,’ adding an additional dimension to the exchange between artist and participant. The exhibition features works from Michael Bauer, Alice Channer, Andy Coolquitt, Cynthia Daignault, Josh Faught, Frank Haines, Alex Olson, John Pestoni, Alan Reid, Erin Shirreff and J. Parker Valentine, and runs through March 25th.
