The BSB Gallery has brought together the works of 18 regional and international multidisciplinary artists to present Free Enterprise, a virtual art exhibition that examines capitalism and the growing controversy of the American Dream. This show, which opens on July 2nd, is presented on bsbgallery.com, via a professional exhibition hosting platform.
“Free Enterprise houses a broad collection of perspectives coming from different social and economic backgrounds, continents and artistic disciplines,” says Aine Mickey, who curated the show.
“The concept of the ‘American Dream,’ as seen and interpreted through the creative lens of those with different perspectives, opens up a discussion on the role of money and finance in our lives,” Mickey says.
“I think it’s very important that we search for understanding, especially within systems that dictate the majority of our lives. It’s a relevant topic to explore today, although we planned this exhibition months ago.”
Mickey and co-curator Christy E. O’Connor have been leaders in offering online programming, hosting more than 25 virtual events since the start of the pandemic, in addition to online exhibitions. BSB Gallery hosts artist meetups, portfolio views and “Drink and Draw” Happy Hours to keep its community engaged and connected.
Free Enterprise will feature the work of the following artists: Sherri Andrews, Bruno Badaró, Stephen Barnwell, Megan Becker, Vincent Bush “VCAB,” Taylor Cacici, Bernardo Corman, CJ Hungerman, Troy Jones, Donna Conklin King, Loura Van Der Meule, Barbara Moore, Julia Muench, Laurie Pettine, Jean-Paul Picard, Chanika Svetvilas, Erhan Us and Michael Wolf.
