5. “Present Futures: Strategies Toward Emancipation (Part One)” at Denny Gallery
This group show, curated by Lynnette Miranda, is part of Denny Gallery’s “summer popup location” on East Broadway. In what is left of Chinatown, which is increasingly being invaded by new galleries (including this one), you can find a timely show in response to mass shootings and police brutality. It features artists Ivan Forde, James T. Green, Tiona McClodden, Kameelah Janan Rasheed, and J. Soto. Also timely is Simone Leigh’s “Guided Meditation for Black Lives Matter” at the New Museum, where she’s holding weekly free public sessions. (The next one is Saturday, August 13.)
Location: 150 East Broadway
Time: Opening Reception, 6:00–8:00 p.m.
