Liona R. Nyariri

Gallery Hours: Tuesday through Sunday, 12-6pm
Cuchifritos  Gallery + Project Space: 120 Essex Street NY, NY 10002 (inside Essex Street Market)

In this first iteration of Liona Nyariri’s project room, /hoo/ /no/ /no/ /go/ /no/, Nyariri will present a listening and film room with special focus on the music of the Civil Rights Movement in the United States, as well as the music from the Anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa.

/hoo/ /no/ /no/ /go/ /no/ is the phonetic writing of the phrase, “who no know go know” and it acts as a prompt that encourages the seeking out of knowledge or information. The idea of the project room was developed while Nyariri was in residency in Artist Alliance Inc’s Lower East Side Studio Program in 2018. The project room is meant to be a space of learning and sharing while interacting with different people from different backgrounds. It is a room where knowledge is gained or where questions are asked and a space that encourages communal engagement with a subject.
