6x6 Blog Tour - the art world paradigm in this new internet eraThursday, July 07, 2011
6x6, a series of six, back to back, one week only art exhibitions in New York City starting Thursday September 8, 2011.
6x6 is an art version of a music festival highlighting a line-up of twelve international artists run by Baang and Burne Contemporary, an unconventional art gallery.
Traditional galleries have the reputation of being intimidating and sometimes even clinical environments regardless of whether they are commercial or artist run galleries. There are already artists running pop-up galleries and going the D.I.Y. route but your events are billed as creating real excitement and having the spirit of an indie rock band. That's an entirely different concept, pushing the D.I.Y event to another level again. I'm curious why you chose to push so far past the comfortingly familiar art event?
