As if a tiny wall on Elizabeth Street wasn’t enough to keep the majesty of 5 Pointz alive, now, a Long Island City gallery is carrying the torch as well. “Whitewash,” a show of artists involved in running the formerly graffiti-covered warehouse complex, opens April 5 at Jeffrey Leder Gallery, and aims to “explore the artists’ feelings since the day of the whitewashing,” DNAinfo writes.
Participating artists include MERES ONE, SHIRO, and CORTES. “That’s kind of the journey, from the first morning, the anger and the pain of seeing it all white,” said Marie Cecil Flageul, spokeswoman for the 5 Pointz Collective. “Whitewash,” Group Show, April 5 – June 8, Jeffery Leder Gallery, Long Island City
