New York, NY. November 16th, 2009. The Gabarron Foundation in New York is pleased to present “BILBAO ARTE – NEW YORKen”, a group exhibition which will feature some of the creative offerings by artists who have carried out their projects over the period 1998– 2008 at the Bilbao Arte Foundation. The exhibition will start with an opening cocktail reception on December 15, 2009 at 6pm.

“BILBAO ARTE – NEW YORKen” is a representative exhibition of projects performed by resident artists at the Bilbao Arte Foundation from 1998 to 2008. This exhibition, which marks the 10th Anniversary of the foundation, includes a series of works which represent some of the most consolidated trends within young Basque art and highlights the variety of the modes, techniques, forms, themes, etc. used by the artists who have given shape to their creative projects in the Centre over these years.

The result is a show of the immense plurality of the creations that have seen the light of day in the installations of Bilbao Arte, a plurality that is also that of contemporary Basque art and of which this exhibition is but a small demonstration.

The Bilbao Arte Foundation is an artistic production centre belonging to the Culture Department of the Bilbao City Council. It provides young creators with the means and infrastructures required to develop their artistic ideas, such as the availability of studio spaces, engraving and silkscreening workshops, digital imaging, sculpture, photography, a film set, documentation centre and projection rooms.

The Gabarron Foundation-Carriage House Center for the Arts is a non-profit institution and an exclusive international center specialized in art exhibitions and other cultural activities. Since 2002, we have achieved to be an excellent platform in the United States to spread Spanish culture, above all, contemporary art. At the same time our organization has promoted the exchange and understanding between Spanish and American cultures, providing a space for interaction and enhanced appreciation of emerging and established cultural figures from both countries.
