Morgan Presents is a New York exhibition space founded and directed by Morgan Aguiar-Lucander.
Morgan Presents invites pairs of artists to create an exhibition that offers a new perspective into their practice. Morgan Presents is not a representing gallery, and no one artist will exhibit twice during the run of the program. Morgan Presents intends to offer an insight into today’s emerging vanguard of painting and sculpture in collaboration and dialogue with established artists and galleries both domestically and abroad. A hardback publication, cataloguing each exhibition, will be published at the conclusion of the project.
The curatorial program will be presented out of 155 Suffolk Street in Manhattan, commencing from September 2021.
