Chilling In Chelsea
Earlier today before work, I had the opportunity to visit not one but two different galleries located in the heart of Chelsea. Thankfully both galleries are right next to each other along with some others that I will be visiting soon. Both exhibits were pretty exciting and y’all know I couldn’t wait to share the deets with my professional homegirls.
The Neverland Exhibit is located inside of the Unix Gallery. Created by Pablo Dona, Neverland incorporates small figurines into different compositions, creating a childhood nostalgic effect on anyone who comes near it. Being known for creating two and three dimensions, Pablo combines both the aesthetics and imagination of one's childhood, which later taps into the emotions of appreciating the simple things in life. Just thinking about it makes me want to be a kid all over again.
Neverland definitely had a whimsical effect on me and it reminded me of my own childhood at my NaNa's house. I definitely recommend all of my professional homegirls to visit this exhibit if you want to take a walk down memory lane.
Next up is Color Space Place by Phillip King. Located inside of Luhring Augustine, Color Space Place is an exhibit of colorful larger than life scale sculptures that take on a new meaning of volume, height, and depth. This exhibit was quick due to the fact that there are only three things to view and I was kind of bummed out about that. Don't get me wrong, all three sculptures are really dope hence the reason why I wanted to see more from the artist. This was his first solo presentation in the United States in over a decade so I will definitely be looking out for more of his work.
Overall, both exhibits were really good and I'm happy I woke my ass up early in time to visit. Comment below and tell me which exhibit you like better and why!
