Art in America on Tour, a group exhibition organized by Brooklyn-based artist and independent curator Julie Torres, includes works by artists from all fifty states as well as D.C. and Puerto Rico.  Gallery is honored to be the first venue to host Art in America on Tour.

Originally exhibited at The Satellite Show Miami Beach, Art in America was an integral component of the “Artist-Run” Ocean Terrace Hotel initiative during Miami Art Week of December 2015. Organized by Tiger Strikes Asteroid—a collective of artist-run spaces with locations in Philadelphia, New York, and Los Angeles—each room of the repurposed Ocean Terrace Hotel, slated for demolition, featured a unique curatorial installation.

Art in America on Tour is both an inspired overview of current art practices in the United States and an improvisational tour-de-force, examining an aesthetic where the artist’s touch holds supreme, where the line between painting and object remains resolutely unsettled.
