IN RIVERS ARTSPACE 2011-2012 | Brooklyn, NYC

InRivers Art Space was an experimental and cultural art hub in the Greenpoint community of Brooklyn. Founded in the fall of 2011, InRivers was more than a gallery, it was a space for creation and imagination. The space featured not only regular monthly exhibitions but it also engaged the community through movie nights, live concerts, artist-run fundraising events, family art workshops and an artist residency. Though short lived, it had a definite impact in the lives of local artists and all who collaborated with the space. A few of the exhibiting artists included: Ali Aschman, Mayuko Fujino, Robert Bohn, Yeji Jun, Jeremiah Jones, Blaise Danio, Carolin Wood, Tim Kelley, Mark Pacheco, Yura Osborn, Rachel Kremidas, Ellie Irons and the Vanica Project.

MAGIKALLY DELICIOUS:

SIGHT & SOUND

2009-2012 | NYC


“MagikallyDelicious” were vibrant and ​expressively shocking multimedia shows. ​Part art exhibition, part musical concert and ​full on freak spectacle. “MagikallyDelicious” ​events were hallucinogenic delights. They ​showcased the works of emerging artists ​working in video, sound and performance art.

Inspired by past alternative performance ​events such as John Cage’s Black Mountain ​College “Happenings”, Andy Warhol’s loft ​parties, and marvelously absurd Fluxus live ​performances. Attendants are sure to ​remember the unique environments they ​were immersed in. They became participants ​in the event itself, not just onlookers. Host ​venues included: Glasslands, The Market ​Hotel, Shea Stadium BK, and Party Expo.

A MILLION ZEROS:

THE 21ST CENTURY ARCHETYPE

APRIL-JUNE 2019 | Brooklyn NYC


“A million zeros added up, unfortunately does not add up to one.” -​C.G.Jung

​​

Archetypes have existed with humanity for many millennia ​through various cultures. They were keenly explored by legendary ​psychiatrist & psychoanalyst Carl Jung. The archetype can be ​defined as psychic patterns of the human mind seen through ​symbolic imagery. Archetypes are constantly intertwined within ​our lives, as they not only influence our thoughts, our emotions, ​our behaviors but also the way we perceive the world. This ​exhibition titled, “A Million Zeros: The 21st Century Archetype”, ​explores themes of current human nature, contemporary societal ​mechanics and the mystery of self.

​​

​The exhibition explores ideas of our current society and the ​archetypes through the lens of the figure in 21st century life. ​Curator G.Romero, brings together a collection of artists from ​various locations including: Sergio Barrios from Venezuela and ​Michael Aitken from Minnesota, both Brooklyn based artists. ​Cynthia Graps, Lizette Abraham, Victor Sandoval & Radharani ​Torres all from and based in Mexico City. All of the works combine ​“the figure” with non-traditional ways of viewing figurative work.

​​

The artists in this exhibition are a diverse voice offering a unique ​vision of the figure in contemporary art.


-G.Romero


PALACES 2012-2015 | NYC

“PALACES” was a multi-sensory participatory ​installation of sound and sight based loosely on the ​mnemonic technique of the “memory palace”.

The installation consists of two created sensory box ​environments. Each sensory box seeks to heighten one ​particular sense and provide an intimate experience ​for each viewer.


Ultimately, PALACES was an in-depth look and ​reflection on the ego, the mind and human ​connections.

ART BRIDGE 2010 | NYC

"Exit This Way"

ARTBRIDGE: First Exposure
