Larry Ossei-Mensah Returns to the White Cube – July 11th, 2013 [SAVE THE DATE]


As some of you may or may not know, I'll be making my curatorial return this summer, July 11th, 2013 to be exact at Mixed Greens in Chelsea.  I'm co-curating an exhibition with my good friend Dexter Wimberly. For those who attended the Young Curators exhibition last summer where I curated the work of Hugo McCloud, you already know what time it is.

The exhibition this summer features new works by a culturally diverse group of emerging female artists aiming to showcase the exciting new ideas that these artists are exploring through their artistic practice. We had our first meetings with the gallery yesterday and I'm really pumped about this exhibition. Stay tuned…..
