September 20, 2015 Coraggio featured in duo show in upstate NY
A two-person show featuring the work of Linus Coraggio and Chris Glembotzky will open on September 26th, 2015 at All Buenos Gallery, 28 Eastern Parkway in Arlington (Poughkeepsie), New York. The opening gala will take place from 10 am to 10 pm, and the exhibit will run at the gallery until January 1st, 2016. This show marks Coraggio’s third duo show since 1985.
Christopher Glembotzky’s work is currently large- and medium-sized digital prints of collage-like still lifes that evoke a Joseph-Cornel-meets-Tim-Burton aesthetic.
Linus Coraggio sculpts by cutting, bending and welding found metal into abstract or representational sculptures, mobiles and furniture. His work fuses the canon of great 20th-century American abstract sculptors with his own punk-rock and recycling style.
Both artists attended SUNY Purchase and cut their teeth professionally in the NYC/East Village art scene of the 1980s and ’90s.

Elena Ab Gallery at 185 Church Street in Tribeca presents a retrospective show spanning three decades of Linus Coraggio’s abstract and representational sculpture. Coraggio, a New York City native, is one of the pioneers of the early 1980s downtown street art movement; the magazine Art In America has credited him with inventing a genre of street art called “3-D Graffiti.”
Coraggio has exhibited both in the US and abroad, including projects in Japan, Scandinavia, Austria and a 2016 commission in France.
He founded the erstwhile art space/performance venue Gas Station (also known as Space 2B for its location at Ave. B & E 2nd St.), and is a co-founder of the “Rivington School” art movement—both seminal downtown epicenters of art activity and sprawling sculptural installation in the 1980s and 1990s.
The show includes paintings, woodcut prints and sculptural furniture.
It opens at 6:00 PM on Friday, May 15, 2015 (opening gala ’til 9:00 PM) and runs through June 30, 2015.
The gallery hours are Mondays: 1:00–4:00 pm; Tuesdays–Sundays: 12 noon–8:00 pm; and by appointment: (917) 691-5647.
