“The Gilded Age” Opening Reception & VIP Viewing

the gilded age

‘The Gilded Age’ featuring new works from Aaron Horkey, Esao Andrews, and Joao Ruas is an exhibition designed around opulence. When Thinkspace Gallery director Andrew Hosner approached Horkey and asked to describe his ideal group exhibition, Horkey immediately suggested Esao Andrews and João Ruas as choice gallery companions. All three artists share an inexhaustible penchant for detail, a preference for all things ornate, and an antediluvian sensibility that tends towards allegory and myth.

We hosted a VIP night for the artists and then the following night was the opening reception, the following photos are a mixture and recap of both nights. The artist did not do wardrobe changes mid-reception.

The Gilded Age Opening Reception featured on Arrested Motion

As we are sorting through the hundreds of photos taken during the opening of The Gilded Age, Arrested Motion already has their 11 page spread up on their site. The Gilded Age featuring Esao Andrews, Aaron Horkey, and Joao Ruas is on view till October 3. Visit the Thinkspace Gallery website to see all the works in the show.

The Gilded Age featuring new works by Aaron Horkey, Esao Andrews, and João Ruas. Co-curated by Andrew Hosner of Thinkspace and Horkey himself, the duo set out to put together a “dream-team” exhibition, giving it a title that harkened back to the late 19th century and the industrial revolution.  Horkey ended up handpicking Andrews and Ruas to accompany him and the results are truly outstanding.
