A.I.R. Gallery

At the generous invitation of Gabriela Vainsencher, I am excited to participate in "Pairs: Women's Friendship in The Art World," an evening that honors women who have influenced and supported the practices of women artists--and an opportunity to toast those who have influenced me as well.

On March 29, A.I.R. Fellowship Artist Gabriela Vainsencher is hosting an event titled "Pairs: Women's Friendship in The Art World." Vainsencher was inspired by A.I.R.'s history as a support system for women artists and her own experience with friendships that have doubled as mentorships. This event serves as an extension and celebration of the alternative communities that create opportunities for women artists. Vainsencher has invited five women who have made space for others in the art world: Katherine Behar, Gabriela Rangel, Jill Steinhauer, Jane Swavely, and Lumi Tan. Each invitee was, in turn, asked by Vainsencher to toast a female friend who played a critical role in forming their career and life trajectory.

The evening will take the form of a large dinner party at the gallery. The dinner party, a gesture traditionally associated with care and connection, will serve as a site for gathering and nurturing influential women in the arts. We invite guests to come at 6pm for drinks and will sit down for dinner at 7pm. "Pairs: Women's Friendship in The Art World" is held in conjunction with Vainsencher's solo exhibition, Rendered Void, on view at A.I.R. Gallery through April 14, 2019

A.I.R. Gallery, 155 Plymouth Street, Brooklyn, NY For the press release and more information visit A.I.R.'s website.

The event is organized in conjunction with Gabriela's solo exhibition, "Rendered Void," on view March 15-April 14.
