In the heart of the financial district, KiptonART + New York City Ballet's Young Patrons Circle celebrated young artists, the 5 year anniversary of KiptonART.com and NYC Ballet's 'Dance With The Dancers' June Benefit Kick-Off for the opening "Fine Future Perfect." DJ Francesco Civetta provided music throughout the 2,200 square foot ground floor retail space at 75 Wall Street for the launch of the newest KiptonART "Access" space curated by Stephen Frailey. The exhibition's theme "Fine Future Perfect" collects a group of young photographers and video artists whose work, while not specifically motivated as a depiction of the future, proposes a template for that which is forthcoming. Their sensibility is buoyant, luminous, and playful, without the weight of place and with shifting identity. Straddling genres of portraiture, still life, and fashion, the work together forms a portfolio of clarity, purpose and optimism.
