New York, NY, Dec 20: NOoSPHERE Arts on the Lower East Side of Manhattan is excited to announce that we will kick off the New Year with A House Full of Friends, both old and new. On Feb 4, 2013, we will have been up and running for
two full years, and we wish to celebrate our second birthday with a benefit auction to raise funds to continue doing what we do: Conceived as a collaborative DIY platform where a wide range of artists help each other shine, our nonprofit project space connects artists from elsewhere with the NYC art scene. Sharing their magic with a different audience allows for fruitful encounters where seeds are planted for new wonders across borders and disciplines.
The work to be auctioned off will be on view for the month running up to our big day: a diverse show of select former exhibitors combined with newcomers handpicked by a distinguished NYC art panel: Turid Meeker (Curator/Art Advisor) and David Gibson (Curator/Art Critic)
Old Friends: Hanneline Røgeberg, Björn Hegardt, Michael Alan Alien, Gisle Harr, Michael Anderson, Lars Strandh, Txuca, Anki King, Marianne Darlén Solhaugsstrand, Boris Zakic, Anna Christina Lorenzen, Morten Traavik, Richard Borge,
Pia Myrvold (full list to be released soon)
New Friends: Alexis Duque, Hsin‐Ju Hsieh, Bryan A. Moore, Kimberley Ross, Yngvar Larsen, Francesco Palombi, Andreas Soma, Alf Solbakken, Marianne Mannsåker, Kari Anne Helleberg Bahri
