PS Project Space presents Joie de Vivre, a group exhibition featuring artwork from the Hullaballoo Collective, an eclectic New York City-based group of artists. Hullaballoo Collective first exhibited in the 2012 Fountain Art Fair at the legendary 69th Regiment Armory, the site of the original 1913 Armory Show in which modern art was first publicly presented in the United States.

Seeking Joie de Vivre is a theme in our daily lives as visual artists. Embracing joy, inclusiveness, and unity, while respecting artistic diversity is our collective “work in progress.” Hullaballoo Collective artists create work using varied ways of seeing and making; the viewer is then invited to seek connections, associations, unexpected dialogues and individual discoveries in this artistic diversity.

In the past the Salon des Refusés and the Society of Independent Artists helped provide footing for the emerging avant-garde in art by creating opportunities for the public to see their members’ work. With the same scrappy energy the Hullaballoo Collective creates its own exhibitions, bringing a blast of fresh work with every showing. Joie de Vivre will feature paintings, prints and sculpture hung salon style, curated cooperatively by the artists in the collective. Exhibiting together to celebrate life, the Hullaballoo Collective,have taken a leap and offer the summer-in-Chelsea-audience the opportunity to come and see what the Hullaballoo is all about.
