Upon its inception in 2005, Jonathan LeVine Gallery became an essential venue for Street Art (ephemeral work placed in public urban environments) and Pop Surrealism (work influenced by illustration, comic book art and pop culture imagery). Embarking on a new journey, the goal of Jonathan LeVine Projects is to expand upon its extensive twelve-year history while remaining true to the mission of bringing avant-garde art with a unique counter-culture point of view to the forefront.
Welcome to New Jersey is a comprehensive preview of the internationally-based, multidisciplinary artists the gallery will present to Jersey City though exhibitions, mural projects and special programs. With a newfound focus on collaboration and developing interesting partnerships, Jonathan LeVine Projects aims to go beyond the white cube gallery model and become a thriving creative center within Mana Contemporary, as well as the community at large.
An opening reception will be held on Saturday, February 18th, 2017 from 6-8pm.
