The Ides of March

NYC's ABC No Rio Third Biannual Exhibition

Third Biannual Building-Wide Exhibition at ABC No Rio

Over 60 Artists Featured on Four Floors

March 14-April 11



VIEWING HOURS: Tuesdays & Thursdays-5:00 to 7:00PM

The Ides of March began in 1998 as a sprawling celebration heralding ABC No Rio's plans to develop the building at 156 Rivington Street, and has evolved into a biannual event with many dozens of artists filling our small tenement building. In this incarnation of the Ides event installation and site-specific work reacting and relating to No Rio's space will predominate, but photography, printing, video and new media are also
included. This year's Ides of March also includes numerous additional events and components.
