Our former artist in residence – Mehdi-Georges Lahlou – who made his New York debut here at the gallery last year,
is now back in the city.
His much anticipated show ‘I did not have to cross the sea’ opened yesterday at Merton D. Simpson Gallery.
We were there ofcourse and warmly recommend you to pass by. And if you missed Lahlou last time this is the perfect opportunity to get familiar with his incredible work.
“Mehdi-Georges Lahlou is one of the few international artists dealing with identity politics who manages to successfully meld together humor, grace, and political activism in his work. His visceral multi-disciplinary work not only invite the viewer to bare witness to his world, but also actively invite the audience to experience it.”
– Jasmine Wahi, Independent Curator and Co-Director of The Gateway Project (Newark, NJ), and Project for Empty Space (New York, NY)
