KESH Marks New York Debut

2016 started out with KESH‘s much discussed solo exhibition LJUS2.

Working with an array of mediums KESH used digital techniques that wouldn’t have been possible a few years ago. Integrating social media as part of her work KESH is always on the frontline of the most relevant platforms of the moment, pushing the envelope as an artist representative of our time.

The opening had an incredible success in New York and was visited by everyone from WSJ to New York’s most popular profiles in art, music and fashion.

The Year Of The Woman

To showcase and highlight the importance of women’s presence in and impact of the arts we decided to make 2015 The Year Of The Woman. Reflecting over the first years of the gallery’s existence and realizing we hadn’t showcased any female artists we asked ourselves, how come? The year and it’s exhibiting artists (Tali Lennox, Ahn Sun Mi, Rebecca Dayan, and KESH) was an invitation to a discussion around the topic and to contribute to a change.

The group exhibition The Year Of The Woman in Mars 2016 summered up the past year’s art work featuring selected works by KESH, Rebecca Dayan and Ahn Sun Mi.
