Ballon Rouge is an international female-led gallery collective founded in 2017 by Helene Dumenil, with curators from cities like Istanbul, Brussels, London, Sao Paulo, Paris and New York.
The Collective has made its way to East Harlem in its first New York show, with curator Kathy Battista, who is also faculty and founding program directors of the MA program in contemporary art at Sotheby’s. She selected Los Angeles-based artist Carmen Argote, who in November took up residency in the ground-floor space of a walkup building located at 345 East 104th Street. The show, Warm is a Black, will open on November 27th and will feature new works made in conversation with the neighborhood and building.
Argote will participate in at least two events while in New York ~ a walk-through of the exhibition with the curator, and an artist’s talk at Sotheby’s Institute of Art.
The project is curated by Kathy Battista, a member of the Ballon Rouge Collective.
