“Yumi Janairo Roth: F.O.B.” Opens at Cuchifritios
Cuchifritos, the art gallery/project space located inside The Essex Street Market will present the exhibition “Yumi Janairo Roth: F.O.B.”, tomorrow with an opening reception and panel discussion from 4-6pm. The exhibit features recent work by Colorado artist Yumi Roth (created during her recent residency with the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council), as she examines the double meaning of "F.O.B." – which can mean "Freight on Board" or "Fresh Off the Boat" (referring to newly-arrived immigrants, not yet assimilated).
The panel discussion will include Roth, Suzanne Wasserman,
Director of the Gotham Center for New York City History, and Nadine
Wasserman, Curator of the exhibition. Gallery Hours: Monday – Saturday, 12 – 6pm
