Little Berlin, an artist-run collective in Philadelphia, PA is excited to present a cross-country gallery exchange with The Front in New Orleans, LA. Founded within a year of each other, both Little Berlin and The Front share commitments to experimental, DIY shows, performances and events.
Throughout the month of June, Little Berlin will be hosting a comprehensive, six-part exhibition at The Front. Little Berlin’s fourteen current members divided the rooms of the gallery space into sections: curating six separate, smaller exhibitions under the larger collective theme and premise of the switch. Calling into question ideas of exchange- across places, ideas and cultures and through different mediums: humor, symbolism, words and sound- each grouping of artwork encompasses different aspects of the paradigm shift. The exhibition as a whole connects artists from across the country in eclectic vignettes while simultaneously providing a glimpse into Little Berlin’s quirky yet carefully considered approach to curation and dedication to innovative, collaborative programming.

Named after the technical time zones where the artists are located, EST & UTC +5 brings together 10 artists from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and 10 artists from Karachi, Pakistan, in an effort to connect across time and space through the universal language of art.

Deadline: January 15th at Midnight
Little Berlin welcomes your application for membership. We are a collective of artists and curators committed to experimental and innovative programming and exhibitions. Our focus is on visual arts, without any clearly defined expectations of what that means. Our collective is unique for its emphasis on curation and programming: members support one another to promote artists and ideas beyond the art practices of individual members.
Frito Bastien: Solo Exhibition
Born in Haiti, Frito Bastien came to the United States in 1991 fleeing political turmoil under the Duvalier regimes. Collaborating with Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program, Mr. Bastien created works depicting scenes and memories from Haiti. His murals and works on canvas describe both real and imagined landscapes filled with people and animals. Through his blending of narrative realism and dreamlike perspective, Mr. Bastien invites the viewer into his world.
Little Berlin is honored to present a solo exhibition of Frito Bastien’s work, on view December 2nd through December 17th. Please join us to celebrate at the opening reception Saturday December 2nd, 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
For more information, please contact Alyssa Kreilick.
