“To be human is to be fixed, embedded and immersed in the physical, literal, tangible day-to-day world.”
This all-embracing approach towards different creative fields is introduced in the inaugural exhibition “Being-in-the-World” of the collective-run art space The Community : Offline, which opened its doors in the heart of the Château d’Eau neighbourhood in Paris. The history of this used-to-be barbershop can still be read on the walls, which offer their surface now for the works of artists and designers with different ways of expressing the contemporary being-in-the-world: visual arts, fashion, design and publications.
The Community was born from a shared desire to encourage dialogue between creatives from different disciplines by proposing them a multidisciplinary platform to exchange. It offers an alternative to conventional gallery and industry practices through a collaborative and evolutionary approach to exhibiting art, and exploring the potential of the reclaimed physical framework. In addition to their future event programming, The Community : Online will be gradually launched to mirror the physical space as an all-inclusive digital platform, to further explore different ways of collaboration.
Being-in-the-World , the inaugural exhibition of The Community is on view through November 26th, 2016.
