Recharge Foundation is pleased to announce its inaugural exhibition, HUMANMAKES: The Imperial Artisans of Modern China, presenting contemporary work by four artisan practitioners of ancient techniques in Chinese fine arts, design, and jewelry.

The exhibition is open from May 2-May 16, 2019. Open to the public starting May 4. Hours are Tuesday–Sunday, 11 am–6 pm. Located at 555 West 25th Street, New York City. Visit www.rechargefoundation.com for more details.
