In response to the popularity of their 2015 exhibition BLOW UP the Bedford Gallery is excited to present a second exhibition of inflatable art.
BLOW UP II explores the imaginative ways that artists use air as a tool for creating large-scale sculpture and includes imagery that is figurative and abstract.
Accessible, yet rich with meaning, these pieces use perception of space to open a dialogue about pop culture and social norms.
BLOW UP II features large-scale artworks by a roster of internationally renowned artists not before seen at the Bedford.
And BLOW UP II will travel nationally after its debut at the Bedford Gallery.
Participating Artists in the exhibition are Chromaforms (Portola Valley, California), Sharon Engelstein (Houston, Texas), FriendsWithYou (Los Angeles, California), Joshua Harker (Dexter, Michigan), , Susan Lee-Chun (Miami, Florida), Matt Ritchie (San Francisco, California), Lizabeth Rossof (Denver, Colorado), Jen Stark (Los Angeles, California), and Max Streicher (Toronto, Canada).
The fun and selfie worthy exhibition is open now through September 15th. Click here for more details on the Bedford Gallery and its future exhibitions.
