TOO BIG TO FAIL

October 12th, 2009

TOO BIG TO FAIL Another group show: TOO BIG TO FAIL is curated by Dan Heidkamp and is at the new NADA Gallery Space at 395 FLATBUSH EXTENSION in downtown Brooklyn, USA.

PLEASE NOTE: it is not 395 Flatbush, but 395 FLATBUSH EXTENSION which is at the Fulton Mall. It is the same block as the Nevins Street 2,3,4,5 as well as the DeKalb B,M,Q,R Station. I made this mistake and went to 395 Flatbush yesterday to see the space and it is a half hour walk from there to get to 395 Flatbush Extension. CLICK HERE FOR A MAP.

ARTISTS: Erik PARKER, Liz MARKUS, Justin CRAUN, Mike DIANA, Daniel HEIDKAMP, Caitlin MCBRIDE, Kenny SCHARF, Brian FAUCETTE, Quentin CURRY, Erik WENDEL, Justin SAMPSON, Kadar BROCK, Allison SCHULNIK, Pedro BARBEITO, Alicia GIBSON, Tom SANFORD.

“TOO BIG TO FAIL” brings together big paintings from 16 contemporary artists whose creativity and impact are impervious to swings in the marketplace or capricious fashionable trends. The sheer size and grandiosity of the paintings, boldly displayed, transform a derelict space into the magical realm.  These works provide both the artist and the viewer an engine for creativity and claim an unassailable significance beyond the realm of any art world paradigm.

The show is sponsored by NADA and LaMontagne Gallery. N.A.D.A. (New Art Dealers Alliance) has procured a block of large vacant commercial storefronts at 395 Flatbush Ave in Downtown Brooklyn for exhibition purposes. This show will be (partly) installed and set up by Sunday October 18th to coincide with the “Nada County Affair” event, with an official opening the following Friday the October 23rd.

OPENING RECEPTION: 6-8PM Oct 23rd 2009. This will be very fun. The exhibition will run until JAN.
