Inaugural show | Jane Lombard Gallery NY
14 January 2016 - 20 February 2016
Jane Lombard Gallery, New York, USA
Lucy + Jorge Orta are really pleased to announce their first solo exhibition in New York City at the international reputed Jane Lombard Gallery. From January 14 to February 20, the artists will present Antarctica, with the most representative artworks from this series.
Along side the signature Dome Dwelling from the ephemeral Antarctic Village installed in Antarctic in 2007 are, Life Line and Drop Parachute as well as numerous watercolour drawings inspired by the artists’ extraordinary expedition.
The centerpiece of the exhibition is Antarctic World Passport Delivery Bureau, a mobile installation recently at the Grand Palais in Paris during the COP21 UN Climate Summit. Visitors to the Antarctica World Passport Delivery Bureau, an architectural assemblage made from reclaimed materials, receive a uniquely numbered Antarctica World Passport and in exchange, pledge to support the project’s principles: to take action against the disastrous effects of global warming and strive for peace.
Since 2008, 55,000 passports have been printed, and visitors to Lucy + Jorge Orta’s exhibition at the Jane Lombard Gallery will be invited to register for their personalized passport edition, and to join this growing community of world citizens. www.antarcticaworldpassport.com
Please join us for the opening in NYC on January 14, from 6 to 8pm.
