New Lower East Side creative space debuts 'Group Sex' today

The East Village-based Ed. Varie is behind a new collaborative space located in Two Bridges at 49 Monroe St. (across the street from Coleman Skatepark in the Full Tank Moto Cafe). And tonight marks the debut here with the inaugural show, "Group Sex." 

Here's more on what to expect via the Ed. Varie Instagram:
Tapping into some of the absurdities of the pandemic, this quote from the NYC Gov website provides some inspiration for our inaugural exhibition in this new space, "The New York City guidelines discourage group sex, but give advice for those who do “decide to find a crowd.” “Pick larger, more open, ventilated spaces" ... 
Group Sex as a title is not a literal interpretation for the curation, but with a goal to create a joyful, fantasy filled visceral exhibition and experience that we have all been missing.
The 11 artists who are christening this new space: Cavier Coleman, Colleen Herman, Esteban Ocampo Giraldo, Giorgio Handman, Ivy Campbell, Leticia Infante, Moises Salazar, Nina Glikshtern, Sarah Hombach, Scout Zabinski and Ted McGrath. 

The exhibit opens today with hours of noon to 9 p.m. (as part of LES Third Thursdays) ... and will remain up through April 18. Gallery hours are Thursday to Sunday, 12–6 p.m. No appointment necessary, masks and social distancing required. 

Ed. Varie (short for Edition Varie), a creative space that has hosted exhibits, book openings and other special events, opened in 2009 at 184 E. Seventh St. at Avenue B.
