On view through Aug. 13: "Lee Lozano: Drawings 1959–64," a solo exhibition of 200 works on paper. here.
The New Yorker has an item on Lozano and her work at this link. An excerpt:
As the art world has grown increasingly careerist and market-obsessed, Lozano has attained cult-hero status for her commitment to absence. Now an astonishing selection of two hundred of her early drawings, made from 1959 to 1964, arrives as a jolting reminder of her ferocious way with materials.
The gallery is open Monday-Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
As previously reported (here and here for starters), this is the latest EV expansion for art dealer and publisher Brendan Dugan, who debuted Karma at 188 E. Second St. between Avenue A and Avenue B in November 2016. A smaller gallery arrived later at 172 E. Second St. (Karma Books opened in April 2018 at 136 E. Third St. between Avenue A and First Avenue.)
As for 22 E. Second St., Willard Morgan started the Ideal Glass Studios, an artist-run film & TV production studio, in 2004 ... and the Second Street building was in use as a gallery and art collective. Morgan, who still owns the building, runs Ideal Glass Studios from space on West Eighth Street.
