State of the City: In The Loop (past show)
August 5th – September 25th, 2011
Rochester Contemporary Art Center (RoCo)
State of the City 2011: In The Loop took Rochester’s unmistakable, often maligned, and nearly 50-year-old ring highway ‘The Inner Loop’ as a departure point. The artists in the exhibition employed diverse methods to consider and discuss the history, present moment, and future of downtown Rochester. This vital series of exhibitions generated important discussions across the art community and fostered productive collaborations between artists, cultural institutions, urban planning/architecture professionals, and the general public in Upstate/Western NY.
