10am - 6pm at LIAIGRE TOWNHOUSE, n/a
On November 18th, 2016, Lauren Collin will be exhibiting 13 pieces from her exclusive collection of her latest bas-reliefs series at the LIAIGRE New York townhouse.
This exhibition in particular, allows Laurenâ€™s pieces to be exposed to an environment and light outside of the typical gallery space, providing a unique reading to the paper achievements. Light, layout and material form allow the viewer to observe the subtle and unique dialogue between Laurenâ€™s works and the space in which they are displayed. This circumstance is crucial during her creative approach as these factors have a significant impact on how the viewer will perceive the work.
The 13 pieces on exhibition are displayed in a variety of sizes and layouts.
8pm at PARKSIDE LOUNGE, 35.00
