I started this year looking back at the past and I talked about future projects for the beginning of the year.
It is now time to tell you more about one of this project.
During three weeks, the collective Stuck in Plastic will have pictures on display near Paris during an exhibition called “Le6Brick”.
This is a extract from the exhibition website:
From February 8th through February 25th 2018, the 6b will be hosting the First International Contemporary Art Exhibition related to the use of LEGO bricks.
The exhibition will feature internationally acclaimed artists, who all use the same medium as a basis for their work and for further research.
The show will also allow for the artists coming together in the same locale – le 6b- to work within a space which focuses specifically on sharing, creative endeavor and networking, or what amounts to the spreading of others’ arts and information.
The participation in the exhibit of active residents and interns of the 6b Community Organization, as sponsors and artists, is also in keeping with the members’ grassroots beliefs. The exhibition and its organization allow for the members of the 6b to expand their own networks and creative processes, and to work, via the LEGO medium, alongside other new artists.
This is a collective exhibition and we (read Boris, Maelick, Stefan and myself) will be surrounded by talented artists using LEGO bricks in different ways to express themselves (photography, sculptures, movies, jewelry, mosaics,…).
SiP goes Le6Brick
We decided to select twelve pictures to illustrate the twelve words.
We won’t reveal the actual pictures that we selected but it was not an easy choice.
During the exhibition, the pictures on display will be up for sale if you are interested in getting some SiP art on your wall.
