Please join us for an exciting temporary gallery exhibition in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on Friday, June 12, 2009 from 6-9pm.
With the economy today in a state of limbo, it seems natural for people in the arts to turn to unorthodox means of getting their work out to the public. There are empty retail spaces everywhere, so I have been working with a real estate agent in Williamsburg to set up a temporary gallery. Mike Allen of Apts and Lofts, was really enthusiastic right from the start about how the possibility of such a temporary gallery event could mutually benefit both the surrounding artist community and his real estate agency.
We are lucky to also have a very high caliber of work to show in the space. Currently based in Brooklyn, Baptiste Ibar was born outside Paris in 1977. He has lived in the United States since childhood and is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. He has had several solo exhibitions and numerous group shows both in New York and Providence. He was part of an extraordinarily vibrant and already legendary arts community that emerged in Providence in the late 1990s and early 2000s. Ibars paintings are in many private collections and his drawings were featured prominently in Michel Gondry’s film The Science of Sleep.
We hope to see you this weekend, or please visit www.baptisteibar.com
