The Business of Aura


Some of my recent works will be included in both parts of the group show The Business of Aura, showing at Broadway Gallery and Elga Wimmer Gallery this August in New York. Details below.

The Business of Aura is a single exhibition hosted in two locations, Elga Wimmer Gallery and Broadway Gallery, curated by Kelsey Harrington. It includes painting, drawing, photography, sculptural prototypes, and installation. The show examines the potential of studio processes to produce aura. In particular it considers sensual, conceptual, and psychological interpretations of aura and highlights the role aura plays in the buying and selling of art.
