SHIN PROJECT aims to increase access to the arts in outer borough communities by bringing exhibitions, artist talks, and curatorial classes to the community of New Lots, Brooklyn. A new body of work by Swedish artist Andreas Emenius will be on view from January 6 – January 28, 2021. Guests can visit in person by appointment, or view the gallery virtually on Instagram.
About the Artist:
Andreas Emenius’s eclectic, cross-disciplinary exhibitions and ﬁlms offers a glimpse into his uncanny world in which ﬁne art and contemporary culture merge effortlessly. Since graduating from Central Saint Martins, Emenius has established himself as an artist working in a place between painting, installation and video. His shows have attracted international attention in the art world and beyond. Drawing from a deep understanding of painting’s histories—ﬁltered through personal experience, myth and sport—his works oscillate between the banalities of everyday life and the otherworldly.
Emenius regularly exhibits his unique visual universe at galleries and art institutions, including shows at Nikolaj Kunsthal; Viborg Kunsthal; Moderna Museet, Malmö; Schunck Museum, Holland; The Torrance Art Museum, Los Angeles; Gwangju Biennale, South Korea; Liljevalchs, Stockholm; and HEART Museum, Denmark. He has collaborated with various artists, including Danish musician Trentemøller, for whom he directed several acclaimed music videos and stage designs, Grammis award winner Jenny Wilson, and others. Together with fashion designer Henrik Vibskov, he has also created the internationally acclaimed art projects ‘The Fringe Projects’ and ‘The Circular Series’ (VibskovEmenius). Emenius is the curator and co-founder of the Nordic Contemporary in Paris and is an active jury member in art and film awards.
