Brooklyn, NY – From December 1, 2021 to January 7, 2022, 440 Gallery celebrates small-scale creativity and innovation with WHOLENESS: The 17th Annual Small Works Show.
In collaboration with MIDHEAVEN Network, this national juried show is a collection of artwork in a range of media and styles. This year’s show, for the first time, will feature a category of small performances: pre-recorded works of sixty seconds or less that may include music, spoken word, performance and theatrical works. The curated collection will be featured in several locations: 2D, 3D and multimedia will be presented and installed at 440 Gallery; a special broadcast will be aired on MIDHEAVEN Network; and the entire collection will be posted online at the 440 Gallery website. The Small Works Show attracts the attention of collectors and art lovers alike and is a favorite annual event for gallery followers.
As a first-generation American and all-media creative producer deeply versed in photographic physics, George Del Barrio’s practice is concentrated on archetype expansion. A resolute, humanistic aesthetic informs each site-responsive design; every curatorial invention & deliverable is in search of duende. Meaning is not a discovery, it is a creation. Del Barrio was born in 1976 in Queens, NY. He is the founding Creative Director × Executive Producer of The Vanderbilt Republic (2008) + MIDHEAVEN Network (2020).
