Petra Projects

Petra Projects curates solo and group exhibitions to broaden public awareness of talented, emerging and mid-career artists in the burgeoning New York art scene and beyond. Exhibitions have been held every three months in rotating venues throughout Manhattan, and beginning in October 2007 exhibitions will be held at Mehr Midtown in Chelsea, NY for a six month period. Each exhibition is created to generate a social commentary on cross-cultural issues by presenting artists whose work is unified by the questions they each explore.
