Open Call for Space 414's October Show


Space 414, a gallery at 414 Van Brunt Street in Red Hook, Brooklyn, is hosting an Open Call Art Exhibition juried by Tanja Grunert.


Reflections on Day of the Dead, Halloween, All Soul’s Day and the Equinox: the time of year when we turn our awareness to the mysterious veil between the living and the dead, between light and dark. This exhibition will examine the ways we communicate with the physical and unseen world, the ways we honor our ancestors, commemorate the dead and celebrate reflections, history, spirituality, community, transition and transformation.

Tanja Grunet first began her career as an art dealer in Stuttgart, Germany. After 11 years she came to the States and opened her own gallery in Chelsea. "Klemens Gasser and Tanja Grunert" operated as a successful gallery for over a decade and represented important contemporary artists that included Chloe Piene, Ann Craven, and Eija-Liisa Ahtila.

The exhibit will open with a party on Friday, October 23, 2009, 7pm-midnight and a close with a party on Sunday, November 15, 2009 from 3-6pm.
