DOCUMENT :: EXHIBIT A :: RE/PRODUCTION and RE/PRESENTATION LAUNCHPAD BROOKLYN 721 FRANKLIN AVENUE BROOKLYN NY OPENING JUNE 14th, 2013 at 6pm Curated by Managing Editor Lynne DeSilva-Johnson with Production Assistance from Ben Wiessner, Taylor Quilty, Kevin William Reed, and Georgia Elrod exhibiting selected artists

Exit Strata is pleased to present community member Georgia Elrod's curated list of work now showing at NYC galleries, from the well known and established to the obscure and avant garde, across the boroughs -- here she offers a generous array of selections demonstrating the breadth and diversity of today's art scene. 
Right now there's so much great work being shown. Often after leaving Chelsea I feel disappointed but yesterday was not the case, there are a lot of great shows there. Being a painter myself, a lot of these recommendations are painting shows. There are so many more but here are some highlights worth seeing. Some are about to close so do it now!

  [caption id="attachment_791" align="alignleft" width="300" caption="HELIOPOLIS presents The Industrious Revolution, May 2010"][/caption] The Heliopolis Project is a storefront gallery and project space in Greenpoint, Brooklyn NY dedicated to fostering a dialogue across all disciplines of making. Founded in 2010 by Eliza Swann and Jason Grabowski, Heliopolis has recently expanded. Collaboratively run, its members now include Bill Abdale, Georgia Elrod, Baris Gokturk, Leo Goldsmith, Rachel Rakes, Sarada Rauch and Andy Wolf. The first show curated by the new members was Soft Opening, March 9th-April 11th, 2012. The space was established to support artists with experiments in literature and art and to foster interdisplinary and translocal dialogues by hosting poets and artists in residence from around the US. As the economy and art market plummeted in the past few years a tightly knit arts community emerged that granted themselves authority over their own work and gave each other mutual permission and support to pursue an alternative way of thinking about the purpose and formal nature of art.

HO! TRIBE! April 1st brought us poetry month, and on that day of inauguration and celebration many members of this community came together for POTLATCH 2012 to share and co-create. (Photos, updates, and CoCo content to come -- follow link above for gallery). We read, we shared, we sang, we broke bread, we laughed, and we felt -- well, I'll speak for myself -- I felt in my very cells a shift towards what can be possible when a community commits to themselves and each other, and the work we make individually and together. The elation, the purity of relaxation into common purpose, the love and mutual respect has carried on not only from this event but from this week's posts, kicking off Exit Strata's wholehearted effort to serve as a platform for this love-in and value creation via virtual space.
