ABOUT ARTIST

Wenlu Bao is a mixed-media artist based in Brooklyn. Wenlu’s work mainly concentrates on female inner crisis and disorder. The discovery of hidden contradictions under seemingly peaceful life awakens her and anger coming after that partially forms up her inspirations. She is a young artist, whose works have been exhibited around the US and China and also been featured by Dazed Beauty. A versatile system has been created based on her original pieces. Her website, wearable or portable creations all work together to narrate, which enables her to enter different aspects of the market. Wenlu received her MFA of Photographic and Electronic Media in Maryland Institute College of Art.

ABOUT ARTIST

Artist+Photo+-+Marcelo+Gallegos

Marcelo Gallegos is a precocious, shapeshifting sorcerer. Gallegos’s works are described as dark rituals which subvert the patriarchy, upset the status quo, and entrap viewers in a phantasmagorical un-reality of the sacred, the profane, and the grotesque.

YOKAI NEIGHBORS

AGG20_DMFront_YOKAINEIGHBORS

Dear AG Gallery’s loyal Customers and all art lovers,
Thank you so much for staying in touch with us by keeping your contact in our mailing list. We truly hope that every one of you are safe from the novel COVID-19 and staying home as much as you can right now.

AG Gallery is pleased to announce that our upcoming group exhibition “YOKAI NEIGHBORS” is opening as scheduled on April 4, 2020. *The gallery however is temporarily closed and there will be no opening reception party.
It is our first exhibition in which we attempt to introduce species of Yokai as thing that are not just scary supernatural monsters, spirits, and demons, but things that live and exist very close to us in our everyday lives. By knowing them deeper through this exhibition they can enrich parts of your everyday life like doing housework, cooking, cleaning, going for a walk, doing trash because according to Japanese folklore there are various Yokai in this world existing almost everywhere we go.

It has been a big challenge for all of us for these past weeks. We hope that by opening the exhibition and sharing new art with you, it will bring you some joy and we hope we can contribute to cheer up our community, instead of cancelling the whole show.

Due to New York governor’s order relating to global spread of the novel covid-19, AG Gallery and all other galleries and non essential businesses in NYC have been ordered to close until further notice. AG Gallery will reopen when the city removes the restriction.

The group exhibition “Yokai Neighbors” was originally scheduled to be on view April 4, 2020 ~ May 17, 2020, but in order to give enough time and chance for the artists and our customers, we have decided to extend the exhibition period. AG Gallery will keep the upcoming exhibition open as scheduled, and the exhibition will be extended (the date will be TBA). Therefore, following exhibitions scheduled for 2020 will also be pushed back and they will be rescheduled as well.

While gallery is closed, AG Gallery will try to enrich the online materials of the exhibition and available work information on our website and SNS including our Instagram (@AGGalleryBrooklyn) more than usual, so you can experience some part of exhibition from home, so please make sure to go check them out.
