A fixture of the LES, ABC No Rio supports a wide range of activities that range from art exhibits to punk shows. On the eve of its 30th anniversary, the existing structure will be torn down to make way for a new building. Taking place from May-October 2009, Hanging Out at No Rio is project that invites nine visual artists to explore the history of No Rio and the multiple communities it serves.
Rather than taking a top down view, the project encourages investigation through a series of informal barbecues and conversations. Out of these interactions, new work by participating artists will be presented in an exhibition at ABC No Rio from September 24-October 15, 2009.
