Mireya Samper | JVS Project Space, NYC.
Opened October 22nd 2016.
Open through November 28th, 2016.
Against social gridlock and unilateral side-views, “Strength in Creative Diversity” is an exhibit that demonstrates the capability of nine totally heterogeneous artists to share their unique art under one roof and to be in harmonic dialogue together. What merges the artists is the commitment, truthfulness and integrity towards their professional creative careers.
Icelandic artist Mireya Samper exhibits her work alongside Lisa Beck, C.J. CHUECA, Daniel Maidman, Ruben Natal San Miguel, Elisa Pritzker, Judy Rifka and Julie Torres.
Curated by Elisa Pritzker.
About the artist:
Mireya Samper (b. 1964) graduated with DNSEP (Diplome National Supérieur d’Expression Plastique) from Ecole d’Art de Luminy, Marseille 1993 after she studied at the Icelandic College of Art and Crafts. As a creator of installations her work supersedes the identity as sculptor or painter, working parallel in two and three dimensions for museums or in-situ. With ease she creates poetical, minimal works that are either ephemeral or carved in stone. Pulling together prima matera into concepts of time and space her oeuvres create connections between the natural elements of water, light, wind, stone and consciousness.
About the Space:
In response to the high demand for artist exhibition spaces in New York City, Julio Valdez Studio, LLC has created “The JVS Project Space”. This space provides professional artists the opportunity to develop and exhibit their work in New York City.
The Project Space brings a new dynamic to the burgeoning East Harlem art scene by offering established and emerging artists the opportunity to develop and present an installation or a new body of work to an audience of artists, collectors, curators and art enthusiasts. The Project Space also serves as a place to conduct follow-up meetings with contacts after having participated in an art event in New York City or elsewhere, such as a solo or group exhibition or an art fair.
Inspired by mentor, great teacher and artist, Robert Blackburn, JVS Project Space continues to be a space for artists to learn, create and find community and inspiration through the creative potential of printmaking in New York City. In tandem with Julio Valdez Studio, LLC, The Project Space allows artists to create and facilitate opportunities by presenting and sharing their work, here, in the nexus of the art world.
