DESCRIPTION

The art world, global companies, complex societies and every
small individual all have one problem in common: how to deal with
the crisis. When money goes wrong nothing goes right. Many in
the high society of art dreamt the dream of instant success and
big overnight money, but the awakening was rough and most of
the ambitious collectors had gone with the wind. So how can one
stay in a market that barely exists in this time, where money
displays a rather strange behaviour.

Jim Avignon, Brooklyn-Berlin based artist, musician and hopeless
bohemian curated a show with 7 young artists from Brooklyn and
Europe,which might have some answers for you. They throw their
skills together and create a panorama, where strange and funny
characters inhabit a peculiar zone somewhere between realist
figuration. cartoons, messageboard-doodling and pure fantasy.
Expect everything from unsentimental portraits, vibrant colors,
playful items contemporary weirdness with a good old
anti-establishment vibe.

Between high art and crumbling economy there is a common
ground for inexpensive works, keenly tailored for broad appeal.

The show must go on.
