Salon We-Are-Familia


The exploration of the non-literal sense of space and family will be the thrust of the Salon We-Are-Familia exhibit at Open Space Gallery , in New York art town Beacon.

Headed by creative director Jennifer Garcia (of SEEE tee fame), We-Are-Familia comprises a collective of 50 artists spread across many disciplines focused on the concept of family.

Artists including Holly Stevenson, Yoh Nagao, Jesse Brown and Peter Kienzle for Superette will show their multimedia pieces, an eclectic mix of work that ranges from photographs to furniture. The highlight of the show is "Keepsake Box No. 5," a motley mix of found furniture pieces and 37 artworks assembled together, including a video screen showing movies by director Olivier Babinet and video artist Rashaad Newsome, plus digital prints by Geneviève Gauckler and Rockers NYC.


For those in the New York area who would like to attend the event, there is a $45 pass available which includes round-trip transportation on a school bus from NYC to Beacon, a BBQ dinner at the gallery and a tour of D.I.A. Beacon. For more information or to reserve a spot, send an email to rsvp [at] we-are-familia [dot] com.
