In honor of their 20-year anniversary, Eye Lounge is pleased to present 20/20: 20 Years of Eye Lounge. This retrospective exhibition, held in conjunction with ASU Step and Northlight Galleries, features works from over 50 past and current Eye Lounge artists, spanning the collective’s rich 20-year contemporary art history.

Located in downtown Phoenix on Roosevelt Row, Eye Lounge is an artist-run, contemporary arts space, committed to fostering emerging and established Arizona visual artists. The collective was founded in 2000 by Greg Esser and Cindy Dach, originally as a migratory group of artists with a desire to work together collaboratively to build exhibition opportunities.

During its 20-year history, Eye Lounge members have been cutting-edge, contemporary artists working in all media, who have gone on to exhibit their work nationally and internationally. Former members are art faculty at colleges and universities, directors at non-profit art centers and successful working artists. Many are alumni of or faculty at Arizona State University as well, which was a key factor in partnering with the university on this exhibition. While Eye Lounge continues to promote promising Arizona artists monthly in its Phoenix location, this broader exhibition gives us the opportunity to exhibit the expanded work of many former and current Eye Lounge artists together in one space.

Exhibition Dates: October 15 - 24, 2020.
