Trisha Baga is in the Fernando exhibition at Franklin Street Works — a new contemporary art space and café in Stamford. Baga, with fellow emerging artists Lukas Geronimas and Mads Lynnerup, created original projects for the not-for-profit space’s inaugural exhibition. On view through Nov, 13, the show includes videos, sculptures and installations by all three artists.
The artists will be at Franklin Street Works on October 22, from noon – 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22 for an all-day “City Saturday” event that makes it easier for people outside of Stamford to meet the artists, see the exhibition and enjoy the café. The day will culminate with a performance by Baga, which will begin around 4:30 p.m. outside of Franklin Street Works and end at downtown Stamford’s Landmark Square building.
Franklin Street Works is an art space that is also updating the present with the past. Combining the DIY attitude and experimental approaches of alternative spaces from the 1970s with the concerns of today’s artists and curators, the organization intentionally adopts an innovative role in the region’s contemporary art scene. Franklin Street Works puts special emphasis on artists who respond to social and physical environments, leading to exhibitions that often encourage a sense of adventure and inquiry.
