Adding to the still-expanding lineup of new, warehouse-scale contemporary art galleries opening in downtown’s Arts District, this weekend’s inauguration for Brannan Mason Gallery promises a fresh take on the premise. All of its exhibitions will focus on social, political and environmental issues, with causes and organizations chosen by the artists to receive donations from each sale.
Brannan Mason’s debut two-person exhibition comes from artists Etienne Rougery-Herbaut and Samdi, and benefits the ACLU’s Immigrants Rights Project. CORNERSTONE is not only the gallery’s first show, it is also the U.S. debut for both artists; it presents new works from each as well as an exuberant series of collaborations the two conceived specially for this occasion.
