About this event


Emanating from an ongoing cultural conversation, 11 Harlem-based artists introduce their respective works in a nocturnal showing Saturday, September 26. A group of multi-national, multi-talented artists residing in Harlem began a monthly meet-up to converse about art and their roles as Agents of Culture. With the onset
of Covid 19, meetings became Zoom-based and more frequent.


Sensitive to the community’s need to experience art, and the artists’ need to commune with their audiences in these uncertain times, “Project Projection” emerged: An evening of art illuminating a vacant storefront, with the ideal venue provided by Harlem restaurant Settepani, (196 Malcolm X Boulevard, at 120 th St).


The public is invited to attend “Project Projection”, the official public launch of ArtFormsUs on Saturday, September 26, at 7:30, presenting a selection of works from the multi-talented, multi-media participants including visual artist Allicette Torres, inaugurating her fiery video “And the Rockets…”, while photographer Undine Groeger presents images examining “reconciliation”; artist Viviane Rombaldi Seppey and mixed-media artist Sade Boyewa El project sensitive works of the inner lives of people and places both familiar and not, while collage/media artists Capucine Bourcart and Tomo Mori create contemplative wholes from fragments of memories. Photographer Salem Krieger reinvents language in a forceful baptism by fire, as Dominque de Cock uses smoke and fragile tissue paper support to capture traces of the ephemeral. Multi-media artist Noreen Dean Dresser confronts the commercial inroads against the natural world with paint and postage stamps. Conceptual artist Xavier Roux engages the personal connection, and sculptor Leah Poller explores the personal using hyper-figurative portraiture to reveal inner thoughts.


The rich, cultural tapestry of these artists is woven, thread by thread, in a stimulating nighttime projection offered to invited guests and passersby to illuminate the cultural strength of this neighborhood. “Project Projection” provides a cohesive whole arising from disparate parts which keep our communities
alive and in communication with each other.

About this event

ArtFormsUs is excited to present the work of various members who have been included in the yearly Central Park Arsenal Gallery presentation of its 38th Annual Wreath Interpretations Exhibition. In this open call, artists were asked to reimagine the idea of a holiday wreath to which they all did with great success.

Normally this exhibition is on display each year at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park. While the gallery is closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic, ArtFormsUs has decided to make an in-person space for the members of the Harlem community to come to view it in person. In addition to The Arsenal Gallery's online exhibition.

We will have three wreaths on display by our various teams.

  • Capucine Bourcart & Leah Poller

  • Sade Boyewa El, Leah Poller, Allicette Torres

  • Dominique de Cock, Noreen Dean Dresser, Undine Groeger
