On June 8, 2010, KiptonART opened the new pop-up gallery at 75 Wall Street in the Financial District in New York to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of KiptonART.com + the opening of FINE FUTURE PERFECT curated by Stephen Frailey and hosted by Kipton Cronkite. The exhibition contains works by 7 emerging photographers and video artists.
Stephen Frailey selected seven young talents to exhibit at the 75 Wall Street “Access” location. Fine Future Perfect’s theme is a multi-media and photography exhibition with the template for that which is forthcoming, while not specifically motivated as a literal depiction of the future. The seven artists exhibiting include KiptonART Rising 2010 Winner Bon Duke, Ina Jang, KiptonART Rising 2009 Winner Naho Kubota, Cristian Mendez, Skye Nicolas, KiptonART Rising 2010 Finalists Reed+Rader and Richard Williamson. The previously empty retail space of the Andaz Hyatt was brought to life and includes new neighbors such as BMW, Cipriani Wall Street, Tumi, Tiffany’s, Thomas Pink and Hermes. Deutsche and other financial corporations are steps away allowing the downtown financial community an innovative opportunity to view and purchase some of New York’s top emerging artists.
