Seen & Heard: 30 years at Art Projects International

AN EARLY ADOPTER CELEBRATES 30 YEARS
As the excellent expansion of the Tribeca Gallery District continues to march down Broadway, Art Projects International, at Vestry and Greenwich, is celebrating 30 years overall — 25 in Tribeca. Founder and director Jung Lee Sanders has presented and organized over 150 exhibitions and featured works by more than 80 artists from around the world. The anniversary show will have a selection of exemplary works and new works by an intergenerational group of international artists spanning more than three decades. Also highlighted are important collaborative ventures, group shows and many previously unpublished photographs of people who have been part of the gallery’s history. Up from March 10 to April 29 at 434 Greenwich.
