Primary Projects Presents Salon de Notre SociétéPublished on: June 10th, 2012 by SoFlaNights.com
Primary Projects presents Salon de Notre Société (“Salon”) – an ambitious group exhibit spotlighting the painting, photography, sculpture and installation of more than 46 artists. An intricate montage of works never-before-seen and previously shown at the gallery, Salon is a nod to the historical “Salon des Refusés” of Paris. Curators Books IIII Bischof, Chris Oh and Typoe pay homage to ‘outsiders,’ honor raw talent and showcase pieces one atop the other in a style reminiscent of 17th and 18th century exhibitions in France. Slated for Saturday, June 9 at 7:00 p.m., reception is free and open to the public; Salon will be on view through July 2012. With Salon, a mash-up of 400+ works by breakout and established artists will hang closely next to each other covering the large majority of wall space at Primary Projects. This exhibition will focus on affordable pieces, which with time, are anticipated to grow in value. Primary Projects has been hailed for its keen ability to collaborate with artists at seminal points of their careers, and for Salon, feature a selection that is as much about potential as it is about breaking and revisiting the mold as a point of reference.
