The Salon Series is an exhibition and discussion project by artist JC Steinbrunner that emphasizes participation between guests and artists to explore meaning, context and craft of new work.
As a guest curator, I invited Diana Gabriel to install Tropisms, a site-specific installation that is an extension of her ongoing Formalities series. Using organic and recycled materials, Gabriel's work appears calculated when in reality it is largely subject to the impulses of improvisation as she responds to the space.
Food for the night was provided by Pleasant House in Bridgeport and craft beers came from Milagros and Andres of 5 Rabbit Cerveceria, the first Latin American themed microbrewery in the US.
