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 experimental freak spectacle. The events showcased the works of emerging artists working in video, sound and performance art. Inspired by past alternative performance events such as John Cage’s untitled happening at Black Mountain College, Andy Warhol’s loft parties, and marvelously absurd Fluxus “happenings”/live performance works. “MagikallyDelicious” shows were hallucinogenic delights. Whomever may have ventured into these events is sure to remember the unique environments they were immersed in. Event 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.


“A Million Zeros”, engages viewers in a visual discussion about the role of the archetype in our lives and how, perhaps, lack of critical knowledge of the archetypes has led our society down a path of self destruction.

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