Little Figures Seeking Homes

On Saturday, June 24, an exhibition of new work by Richard Finkelstein called You lose yourself, you reappear is opening at BCB ART at 116 Warren Street. In anticipation of the exhibition, gallery owner Bruce Bergmann is asking his fellow business owners on Warren Street to display one of the artist's small enigmatic statuettes in their place of business.

The sculptures are key elements of the exhibition, and the statuettes, appearing in various places along Warren Street, will be tangential features of Finkelstein's installation. In exchange for hosting a statuette and in recognition of support for this project, each participating business will receive the sculpture it hosts as a gift from the artist and BCB ART.

Bergmann will be delivering the statuettes to their new homes next Monday and Tuesday. To ensure that one can take up residence in your shop window, email him now and let him know you are interested in hosting one. 

An opening reception for the artist will take place on Saturday, June 24, from 6 to 8 p.m., at BCB ART.
