ARTISTS FROM SWISS ALPS REGION GLARUS AT BROADWAY IN NYC

THE FORGOTTEN CHILDREN OF ART

75 years of art history visits NYC. The project Swiss Artists From Glarus will show at Gallery Abraham Lubelski 450/473 Broadway, March 6-17, 2001.
The more than 20 artists all live and work in the Swiss mountain valley of Glarus. Last year they teamed up to do a valley-wide exhibition on eight historical sites throughout their mountain Canton. Quite a number of the participating artists are former students and gallery artists of Glarus' Art School Center, Fly Gallery, headed by artist Barbara Streiff in the gods of the old railway station in CH-8750 Glarus in Switzerland.
The NYC exhibit is conceived and organized by the Head of the Glarus Art School Center and Fly Gallery, Barbara Streiff. For the last ten years, she has been working in the cultural heart of Glarus, as artist, sculptor, art teacher, and curator of socio-interactive exhibitions recognized throughout Europe. A major concern is the socio-cultural animation of art - the kind of Vernetzung or Verflechtung that also marks her sculptural work. The Vernetzung/Verflechtung sculptures are now internationally known as AÏON or primae geometrie sculptures. In 1999, Streiff was invited to her AÏON work at the Abraham Lubelski Gallery. Out of this contact the idea of a joint visit in the same gallery emerged.

The future of The Forgotten Children of Art from Glarus may not be forgotten, thanks to the chance given them by Abraham Lubelski's invitation to host their work in his international gallery space on 450/473 Broadway, NYC, March 6-17, 2001.
