IFAC (International Fine Arts Consortium) debuted their inaugural exhibitions at its headquarters in the Lower East Side this past Friday. Teaming up with The Yard, IFAC founder Lee Wells and IFAC director Gregory de la Haba treated art enthusiasts to a night that showcased three New York City legends: Victorian punk pioneer Colette Lumiere, painter Robert Petrick, and neo-expressionist Frank Shifreen.
Lee Wells and Gregory de la Haba released this statement:
“Each [artists] developed a unique visual language for their art while remaining as outsiders to the trends they established (in Colette’s case) and or to those styles and influences that have followed.”
Although the homage to Colette the Artist, Petrick’s Gestural Geometry, and Shifreen’s Meditation and Apollo vs. Dionysus are separate presentations, all three will be on display until January 13th 2014. Be sure to stop by! In the meantime, check out some snapshots of the opening reception from our Editor in Chief Akeem K. Duncan.
