Fisher Parrish Gallery: The Essential Goods Show
06/26/20 - 08/30/20
9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Fisher Parrish Gallery is proud to present The Essential Goods Show. When Fisher Parrish Gallery asked 80 artists at the start of lockdown to make an object they deemed to be essential – a word that had become so common and such a determining factor in our productivity, our businesses and the way we conducted our everyday lives – we were feeling fear, isolation, anxiety, sickness and a desire to promote personal well being. Within these three months we have grown furious, frustrated, discontent, tired, and are now taking up action together like never before. Some objects here are beautifully simple meditations on form and function, some are personal and sentimental, and others are powerfully political. All of them, in one way or another, are fascinating artifacts of a bizarre and unprecedented time.

20% of the proceeds of this exhibition will go to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund – an organization we feel can make actionable change towards defunding the police and ending racism and police brutality.
