First Friday Event: Opening of "Current Seen" Small Venue Biennial

Join us at the Rundel Memorial Library building for a special viewing of "Crafting Democracy," to celebrate the First Friday opening of "Current Seen", the Small-Venue Rochester Biennial for Contemporary Art. The biennial includes more than 20 exhibitions and events organized by both experienced and emerging curators spanning three generations. Current Seen supports the region’s growing contemporary art community by bringing new curatorial voices and new artists together near East Ave. and Main St., connecting audiences along these historic streets. Core Venues (Rochester Contemporary Art Center, Rochester Public Library, Visual Studies Workshop, and RIT City Space, and Framework Venues (galleries, community, and alternative spaces, and pop-up venues) host curated exhibitions of local and national artists related to the general theme: Our Current Moment / Our Changing City. Sites are within 2 blocks of East Ave. & Main St. between Prince St. & King St. Most exhibitions will open to the public on First Friday, October 4. Nearly all venues will be open Thursdays & Fridays 1-9 pm, and Saturdays 1-5 pm. Some venues are open additional hours. Exhibitions are free or nearly free. Public Art projects are available to be experienced 24/7. Current Seen is on view October 4 - November 17. For more information about this city-wide exhibition visit http://www.currentseen.org/
