Reception: Wednesday, October 17, 6:30 - 8:30 PM
SOUK explores the intersection between texture, color, and form in a variety of media, from vintage textiles to contemporary painting. Inspired by the bazaars of Morocco, the show seeks to challenge the traditional model of exhibition curation by reconfiguring the gallery into an international marketplace of artisanal objects and wares — maintaining the historical significance of the souk as a site of commerce and counterpoint to the present-day art fair.
