Gallery Cubed is pleased to present Benjamin Evans: Brooklynight — one night only!
Benjamin Evans is an artist and writer currently based in the French Alps. Originally from the Canadian province of Newfoundland, he spent seven years living in New York City where he directed the non-profit gallery NURTUREart and was active in the Brooklyn arts scene. He has exhibited previous bodies of work professionally in both Canadian and New York venues. While living in Paris, Evans opened the itinerant gallery project Projective City, which exhibited the work of emerging artists in Paris, New York and virtual spaces in between. He holds five degrees, including a PhD in philosophy and an MFA in mixed media, and has taught at several institutions, including the Alberta College of the Arts, The Parsons School of Design in New York and Parsons Paris. Having completed his PhD, he has recently returned to making art full time.
Artist Benjamin Evans collects dreams. For his exhibit “Brooklynight,” various Brooklyn-based subjects have undergone scientific dream data collection, and the resulting sculptures investigate the disjunction between dreams as hopeful wishes, as nightly hallucinations, and as abstract scientific data. The expansive exhibition will be visible through a peephole.
