HAIRandNAILS @ 9 Herkimer Pl, Brooklyn
On May 5th, 2019 we opened our first pop-up exhibition outside of Minneapolis, on view thru Sunday, June 16th, 2019.
This exhibition took place over six weeks, opening May 5th, 2019 and closing June 16th, 2019. Located at 9 Herkimer Place in Brooklyn, NY this show was the manifestation of our goal of bringing Minneapolis artists to new audiences by partnering with galleries, artists, institutions and performers from other cities. It included four Sundays of performance. A very positive and meaningful success, this was our first attempt but will certainly not be our last.
Fontaine’s contribution included Strap II and 295 Red Cadmium Lines, two paintings that had been shown previously in The Confounding Variable at HAIRandNAILS. Also in the mix were two new objects, Strap III a large-scale sculptural wall hanging, and the dual column-like epoxy sculpture Stacked Enclosures.
