On Wednesday, September 6th, Carlos Junqueira and Luciana Brito celebrated the opening of “Ruptura” – an in-depth exhibition of work by the São Paulo-based Grupo Ruptura.

Grupo Ruptura founded the Brazilian concrete art movement, which espoused the creation of universally apprehensible compositions through the use of color and geometry in sync with a modernizing society.

Espasso Annex / Luciana Brito NY Project, is an original collaboration between Carlos Junqueira and Luciana Brito aiming to explore the convergence of design and art through a Brazilian perspective.

The exhibition will be on view from September 6 – November 6, 2017 at ESPASSO Annex/ Luciana Brito NY Project at 186 Franklin Street in TriBeCa.

Campana Brothers: HYBRIDISM

Photos: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

On September 07, the Campana Brothers celebrated the opening of their latest exhibition, HYBRIDISM.

Friedman Benda gallery is presenting Fernando and Humberto Campana in an immersive exhibition devoted to the theme of hybridism. The works are assemblages of materials and visual themes drawn from the Brothers’ immediate surroundings and will include deeply personal reflections and gestures juxtaposed with classical motifs.

Hybridism, informed by details, moods, and emotions, marks a point of departure for Estudio Campana as its most sculptural body of work to date. Humberto Campana explains, “With this exhibition we are playing much more with sculpture than with functionality. We manifest a dialogue between designer, artist, and sculptor. Fernando and I try to jump into the assemblage process unconsciously, allowing us a freedom and immediacy that goes beyond our practice to date.”
