THE LIKES OF US
Wolfy Part II
Curated by Maya Hayuk and Alethia Weingarten
The Center for Advancement of Contemporary Art is thrilled to present The Likes of Us, a group exhibition of painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography and video from Dec 5 - Jan 20.
As one of the last vestiges of Old Williamsburg, The Center For Advancement of Contemporary Art (C.A.C.A), originally started out as a collective studio run by artist Maya Hayuk in 2011. While galleries and artists moved further away into Bushwick and beyond, the need to have physical presence in the neighborhood grew from pipe dream to a real imperative. For the group exhibition The Likes of Us, the curators have selected exceptional work from artists who have played a significant role in building a creative family while developing new work with C.A.C.A. since its inception.
“A wise man once told me ‘if you want to see something, curate something’. In 1998, I did just that. Culling from the vibrant, immediate community of San Francisco, i didn’t have to reach far to create an exhibition in the contemporary gallery where my new friend, Alethia Weingarten, was then the director. Now, almost 20 years and many iterations of lives, likes, loves and evolving everythings, Alethia and I have co-curated a show that’s been a long-time coming. We hope you join the likes of us this winter.”—Maya Hayuk, 2017
