NEW YORK — Join Paula Cooper Gallery today (Tuesday, 6–8pm) at their new 26th Street location for the opening of “50 Years: An Anniversary. A Benefit Exhibition for March For Our Lives.”
The exhibition celebrates the October 1968 opening of the Paula Cooper Gallery in SoHo, five decades ago, with a show to benefit the Student Mobilization Committee To End The War In Vietnam and Veterans Against The War In Vietnam. The fiftieth anniversary show includes artworks from that time period by the original artists.
In keeping with the intention of the inaugural exhibition as a “forceful statement for peace,” the anniversary show is a benefit for March For Our Lives. As a synthesis of the radical political and aesthetic shifts that were emerging in the world at that time, the 1968 exhibition bears resonance in our contemporary landscape. “50 Years: An Anniversary” aims to reexamine and recommit to those appeals for national change.
