Bond Street Gallery is pleased to introduce our grand re-opening group exhibition on August 26th: New Americana. Christina Kerns curates a show pulling artists from across the US in media ranging from painting to sculpture. This show marks the first of many in conjunction with Bond Street Studio as a non-traditional space in the fastly growing Carroll Gardens/ Gowanus area.
The changes in American art over the past 50 years culminate in a post-pop art, post neo-dada, post-post modernism movement: New Americana. Through subtle and not so subtle intensity these creators share commonality through uncommon media. The work chosen reflects a neutralization of details and rendering as well as a borrowing of ideas, literal objects, and imagery. This exhibit takes new authority through perversion of former artistic chapters. In New Americana symbolic imagery diverges from the literal Campbell Soup Cans of Warhol, and American Flag of Johns, but still remains the iconography associated with their movements. The populace in New Americana capture, mock, disrespect, honor, and even love the current world with their imagery, all the while drawing from past thinkers and commentators.
Bond Street Gallery's past excellence as a traditional space is being reinvented in a different location, which will now accommodate new media such as sculpture, installation, etc. Once exclusive to photography Bond Street Gallery is now open to submissions from artists of all backgrounds. Our goal is to exhibit and present new and emerging talent and to make art accessible to all collectors. New Americana has works from the following artists:
Pontius de La Polaroid
