OCCUPY MANA: Friends in Solidarity (Year 1)

Curated by Phong Bui & Rail Curatorial Projects

October 15–December 15, 2017
All Floors 

Each floor of Mana’s main building will be occupied by works of various media—half from artists based at Mana and the other half by other New York-based artists. Together, their works will be installed in transient spaces, including the main entrance, hallways, the café, and a variety of unidentified walls in between. This is a sheer act of solidarity in protest of the current political agendas implemented by the Trump administration.
