Galerie Philia Presents First Times Exhibition
First Times is an exhibition featuring artists never before exhibited with Galerie Philia – and for many, have never shown work within the United States. The international roster of designers are presenting works ranging from Lebanese-based Richard Yasmine’s After Ago pieces deeply rooted in Postmodernism, Memphis design, to Mexico-based Manu Bano’s solid minimalistic brass lightings.
The exhibition reflects Galerie Philia’s willingness to support works originating from different cultures, especially those of which that transcend formal, stylistic, national and historical barriers. The common thread of artistic quality stitches together a wide range of creative worlds connected by their inter-culturalism.
The gallery is also taking this time to introduce their new Philia Interiors project. As described by the gallery, “Staging with artistic curation and sculptural design pieces is the heart of the project, and as this event is taking place in a true livable space, it will show the various possibilities that Philia Interiors will be able to explore in its various future projects.”
First Times opens October 5th and runs until December 3rd at Galerie Philia, 39 Lispenard Street, New York, NY.
