artREAL Event: HIGHER GROUND A private group art exhibition of six artists in the penthouse of 17 East 12th Street, New York

artREAL and Mercer Contemporary present HIGHER GROUND

artREAL and Mercer Contemporary are pleased to present HIGHER GROUND, a private group art exhibition of six artists exclusively set within the penthouse apartment of 17 East 12th Street. The penthouse is on the market for sale.

This partnership between artREAL, Mercer Contemporary and Douglas Elliman Real Estate aims to highlight and celebrate the incredible work of these artists, while drawing attention to the crossover of art and real estate in New York, and the placement of art within a luxury property setting.

The show draws on the hustle, drive and grace of this select group of artists, and their unending ambition to push their work into new subject matter, spaces, and materials, much like New York real estate. Drawing on their environment and found objects from the city, they create abstract, non-representational canvases, rich in gestures of performative painting, with an irrepressible palette that reflects both the joy and grittiness of New York City.
