Exhibition Dates: December 1st – December 3rd 2007
Location: The Showroom 117 2nd Ave and 7th St Curated by James Curtright

2 LATE 2 HATE 2 is an exhibition of artwork by the late Carlucci Bencivenga (AKA ELF MPC) and over 50 artists who contributed works for sale to raise money to archive and publish the work of Carlucci.

The title of the exhibition refers to the name of Carlucci’s final solo exhibition, 2 LATE 2 HATE. Carlucci was a prolific artist whose body of work ranged from painting and printmaking to graffiti and noise performances. He was a luminary of the Lower East Side art scene and an integral thread in the community that has woven throughout the neighborhood over the past 15 years. Carlucci was an avant-garde artist whose art was his life and life was his art, intrinsically referencing movements such as CoBrA and the Viennese Actionists. Over 50 friends and colleagues donated 8” x 11″ˇ works on paper to be sold for $50 each.
