Natasha Johns-Messenger: Threefold opening reception

When: Friday, 18 September - Sunday 22 November
Hours: Thursday-Sunday, 1-6pm and by appointment
Where: El Museo de Los Sures, 120 South 1st Street (Between Bedford Avenue and Berry Street), Brooklyn, NY

El Museo de Los Sures and International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) are pleased to present the first US solo exhibition of the respected Australian-born artist, Natasha Johns-Messenger. The exhibition, titled ThreeFold, is curated by Melissa Bianca Amore, and presents an interactive installation that directly disrupts the spatial continuity and perceptual reading of the space at El Muse de Los Sures. The site, a small-scale street-level gallery on the ground floor of a low-income housing unit in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is the focus of the artist's investigation both as a subject and a pictorial object.

Classically trained, Bridie's career began in 1983 with John Phillips on the song "Moving Around" using a borrowed 808 drum machine. The subsequent recording of atmospheric instrumentals sparked the duo's enthusiasm for the free-form ambient soundscapes that became the basis of their group Not Drowning Waving and lay the seeds for their interest in film music.
