Collective Futures 001 is the first in a series of exhibitions focusing on the action of collaborating. The exhibition will feature the works of various artists and creatives working together to create a social experience where art, music, and food will be the centerpiece of a gathering that aims to be inclusive and devoid of any pretensions.
à¯»¿Our four featured artists all hail from Japan and while this may seem to be a central focus of the exhibition, we are in fact more concerned about how their lives have become intertwined through their art and lifestyle. Their works, while different in format, manage to permeate their dedication and good vibes in a singular way. Davide Kenjoh's paper-cutting pieces, Saki Tanaka's colorful drawings, Takafumi Miki's micro/macro portraits, and Yu Fujiwara's intimate street photography are the centerpiece of Collective Futures 001.
à¯»¿Alongside their work, we'll showcase two unique pieces created specially for the exhibition by two of our most esteemed online collaborators: Natural Values (http://www.naturalvalues.mx/) from Mexico City and Santiago Merino (http://www.smerino.com/) from Medellà n. Taking inspiration from the works of our featured artists, they will each craft a limited printed piece available through The Vyner Studio and our online shop.
Music wise our resident Oliver Brunetti will be playing some top selections alongside two of the most passionate music lovers we've met and worked with: Ià ±igo Ugarteburu
(http://inigougarteburu.bandcamp.com/) is a folk musician from the north of Spain with a penchant for discovering rare music treasures, which he'll share with us on the evening. Likewise, Dana Dramowicz aka Artfruit (http://soundcloud.com/artfruit) will provide some bass centric and off-center sounds to call it a night.
