Kraine Gallery is proud to present "老外 - Laowai - Foreigner,” a visual conversation started by seven emerging artists exploring cultural issues and personal narratives that span the globe from East to West. These artists - four from North America and three from China - met, shared studio space, found common ground, and exhibited together this past summer in Shanghai and Beijing. Join us as we welcome these artists back to New York City and see a new breadth of artwork they and their new colleagues created from seven thousand miles away.

Each piece in this exhibition is an intimate work that reflects a shared commitment to reexamining notions of individual and social life, as well as emphasizing the distinctly different approach each artist brings to their own discipline. Moving beyond borders, artists trained in the western tradition and their Chinese counterparts share a visual dialogue through a love of low tech, hand crafted, image based practices.

Kraine Gallery returns after its summer hiatus with its first ever Swap Party.
Build your art collection by swapping art!

Swap Party invites you to join us for cocktails and encourages you to
trade a work of art for a work of art.

Leave a Piece, Take a Piece: A NO Negotiation Trading Space will take
place in Kraine Gallery. You are invited to hang your work in the
gallery for the duration of the Swap Party. There will be nails in the gallery
walls ready for you to hang your piece. Kraine Gallery will supply push pins,
double sided mounting tape, string and binder clips.
We suggest hanging work with an estimated maximum value of $100.00.
Please follow the honor system, only taking as many as you leave. And
be sure to leave your contact information on the backside of the

KGB Bar (not the Gallery) will be a trading and networking
environment. Tables are available for you to display your work on as
needed. If your artwork is visible it will be assumed you are open to
negotiate an exchange, you can accept offers or reject them. Terms of
negotiation are left to individual artists discretion. Please be
modest and professional; this is not a flea market or craft fair.
Kraine Gallery is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged works
of art. Please package your artwork in a way that it may travel safely and
be presentation ready (e.g. a petite portfolio, presentation box, a folder,
photo album, cardboard sandwich, envelopes, paper bags, and any other
reasonable packaging solution.).

If you have any questions about the event please contact Kraine Gallery
