Artist, Lacey Richter: Way to cross-promote!

Art Admins, Dan and Meaghan, speak with Lacey Richter at the EX opening in NY
“Lacey Richter is an Austin-based artist in Texas working in a variety of media, including paint, charcoal, needle and thread, electric tape and fabric.  Her work is influenced by internal energies and intuition.  Richter’s organic mixed-media pieces and fabric-based installations have been featured in solo and collaborative shows in Austin and Mexico.  She recently completed her first residency with the Serie Project, producing a limited edition silkscreen print based on her visions for 2012.  Ex: Collaborative Creation was her New York debut.  Richter enjoys dead birds, live birds, shimmery things, and honkytonk dancin’.”

Lacey has work on display now at ROAR, Austin, TX

“MY WORK IS UP AT ROAR on 5th just past BRAZOS. Great Visual Accompaniment for Austin FASHION WEEK. Stop by and Say Hello to the ROAR Gang – They Are Great!! I have already sold three pieces, one of which was during Install! Reception to be held September 6th, 6:30-8:00.” – LR

NY & CHI – Done. Fort Wayne – Here we come!

Thanks Robin for being so awesome and hosting the second installment of EX: Collaborative Creation in your ROCKING Chicago apartment a.k.a. “Carousel Space”.

Robin Kang is an incredible artist who has true dedication and vision. Check out her own artwork here. Weather she is building a brick house (or a digital textile) this girl is mighty-mighty. So, check her out!

Robin recently completed her Masters of Fine Art at the Art Institute of Chicago, was a co-fellow of mine in Air Projects‘ pilot in Beijing, and has been running Carousel Space out of her home since January 2011.

EX is now headed to Fort Wayne, IN and will be the virginal exhibition of Wunderkammer Co.‘s new space, to the bliss of founder, Dan Swartz.

EX: On the move…

The exhibit “EX: Collaborative Creation” is headed West, to Chicago. Chi-town Artista, Robin Kang, will host the second life of the installation at her Carousel Project. I, for one, am very excited to see her interpretation along with Dan Swartz, who will also be hosting the third personification of the work  in Indiana later this summer.

EX: Creative Collaboration honors and breaks surrealist conventions, bringing a diverse
collection of artists together, conversing through corpses.


New York, New York, February 1, 2012 — Wunderkammer Company is proud to announce
“EX: Collaborative Creation”, an exhibit curated by Bonnie K Mancini. Ex will open March 8th at International Artist Movement (IAM)’s gallery space, and will continue through March 30, 2012.

As part of their mission to revitalize communities through contemporary art, Wunderkammer Company is interested in the innovation inherent to the collaborative process. To facilitate this, EX takes the Surrealist tradition of the Exquisite Corpse and creates an indirect collaboration between artist, curator, and administrator. Inspired by The Exquisite Corpse parlor game, which was originally intended to provoke further creativity by removing sole authorship and pre-conceptions of form, EX will produce a vivid experience for its viewers, and facilitate new connections between the artists in disparate communities.

For the duration of its stay at IAM there will be several corresponding events in celebration of Surrealist ideas and collaborative processes: A lecture by Daniel Swartz of Wunderkammer Company, a viewing of Jean Cocteau’s Beauty and the Beast, and a colloquium with Lucy Collins and Tove Hermanson on the influence of Surrealism on Fashion. “EX: Creative Collaboration” will also travel to Chicago, IL, and Fort Wayne, IN throughout 2012.

Bonnie K Mancini would like to offer a special thanks to IAM for the use of their space, and specifically to Meaghan Ritchey for her overwhelming support.
