Contemporary Art: Young Frankensteins @ Lesley Heller Workspace , New York

(Drivebycuriosity) - New York´s Lower East Side is famous for the density of pubs, bars & cafes. But the gentrifying neighborhood also has a nice selection of art galleries. One of the finest art places is @ Lesley Heller Workspace on 54 Orchard Street (lesleyheller). I have reported before about interesting shows there (here  here  here ).

The art dealer has a new group show, called "Young Frankensteins", curated by Peter Schenck (through April 03, 2016). I show here my favorites from the exhibition, a very subjective selection as usual. The pics all are shot with an iPhone 6s Plus.
