New York, NY, October 11, 2007 — On Thursday, November 8, The Harlem School of the Arts
unveils Prolepsis, the first group exhibition of works by HSA Teaching Artists, and introduces The G-
Space Gallery, the newest contemporary gallery space in Harlem. In what promises to be an innovative
and dynamic influence in both the Harlem arts community and the school, the G-Space Gallery at HSA
(located in the main “gathering space” of the school) will celebrate HSA’s role as both an institution of
arts education, as well as an arts incubator.

Prolepsis features the work of HSA faculty across several media, including painting, sculpture,
photography and mixed media. The exhibition title Prolepsis draws from one possible definition meaning
“the representation of something in the future as if it already existed or had occurred.”

“The title of this inaugural exhibition is so appropriate because there has never been an event like this
at HSA,” said Imo Imeh, Director of the Visual Arts program and one of the artists in the show. “This
show launches a new tradition of showing the work of our talented teaching artists and students, in a
venue that is accessible to both the HSA and the Harlem communities.”

                                                      — more —

In addition to student work, the G-Space Gallery at HSA plans to showcase the work of professional
artists from the community and beyond on an ongoing basis. These artists will also hold Master Classes
for HSA students while their work is being exhibited.
