March 13 - April 10, 2010
Reception: Saturday, March 13, 4 - 6 PM
Curator and artist Edgar Orlaineta will present ‘Cafe Tschichold’ an exhibition that will investigate terms like arts, science, technique, poetry and music. The exhibition will bring together a group of artists who deal with these kinds of issues and are interested in presenting a collaborative project integrating different techniques –design, visual art, craft–, into one integrated and cohesive ambient. The artworks will address notions of recycling (objects and ideas), micro-modernism (as a “do-it-yourself Modernism), the site (the Essex Street Market specifically), the history of Modern Art, Design and Architecture, sustainability, the urban environment, and crafts.
