Heavy Sauce

September 12, 2019 to October 23, 2019

For this show, Fountain House Gallery artists were presented with a quotation by the artist Lee Lozano (1930–1999) as a starting point for a discussion about the physical, psychological, and sociological nature of New York City. In her NYC 1960s notebook, Lozano wrote: “Every day thousands of pounds of paint are applied to buildings in NYC, signs, benches, etc., which can only mean that the city is getting heavier and heavier.”

Heavy Sauce is curated by artist Gerasimos Floratos, who said, “Fountain House Gallery is located in the center of the two-block radius where I grew up and where I continue to live and work. I remember attending their openings during my teens and have closely followed the program over the years, and the Gallery’s artists and their artworks remain a source of inspiration to me. Before I selected the work for Heavy Sauce, Fountain House Gallery kindly invited me to become acquainted with their community of artists. What I learned from the artists is that we all have unique perceptions of our city and that as locals we are all a part of the ongoing tapestry of its history.”
