With no shortage of irony, this show seeks to turn the typically cheerful, inclusive attitude of a summertime group show on its head, showing works by William Powhida and Karen Finely colored by pessimistic class consciousness and acerbic art-world parodies.

THE DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ART WORLD, PART I: THE ONE-PERCENTERS runs July 11 through August 17. Freight + Volume is located at 530 W. 24th St., New York. Opening reception will be held on Thursday, July 11 from 6:00 to 9:00 PM.
