This event has ended.

agnès b. and Auto Body are pleased to present auto b., a group show featuring eight artists and designers at the agnès b. Galerie Boutique in Soho, NYC. The installation will include the work of Dana Davis, Nathaniel de Large, Kevin Evans, Juan Jose Heredia, Valerie Kamen, Hayley Martell, LQQK Studio, and Marion Vallerin.

In the playful and collective spirit of the age-old drawing game, ‘cadavre exquis’, each New York-based artist and designer has been given a letter from which to create a work. While each participant works in varying scales and mediums of graphic design, sculpture, screen-printing, painting, and textiles, the collection of assembled works come together to spell out Auto Body’s namesake.

In addition to the show, a limited edition tee-shirt collaboration between agnès b. and Auto Body and hand silk screened by LQQK Studios will be available for purchase.

agnès b.
agnès b. is a family owned and operated French clothing brand founded in 1975 that has come to include 282 stores worldwide, two contemporary art galleries, and a hybrid art periodical named the Point d’Ironie. From its founding in Paris, agnès b. has long supported and engaged with the arts, through exhibitions of graffiti artists, filmmakers, and photographers, and is known for single handedly supporting artist’s careers. The agnès b. Galerie Boutique opened in 2011 and was her first location to include a dedicated art space. Part gallery, part boutique, it uniquely combines art and fashion, hosting several exhibitions each year with a focus on contemporary photography, painting, and sculpture.

Auto Body
Auto Body is a non-profit arts organization with a focus in bringing art to unconventional environments in an effort to reach diverse audiences. Founded in Bellport, New York in 2014, the group is composed of eight practicing artists and designers; Tyler Healy, Johnny Knapp, Aria McManus, Claire Read, Georgia Read, Will Rose, Quinn Sherman, and Charlie Stravinsky. Originally based in a self-renovated mechanics garage, the group has since expanded beyond its physical space to produce shows and installations in various landscapes, rooftops, farms, public roadways, and beaches, operating both as a collective and as curators. Auto Body produces a line of American-made products, hosts a weekly talk radio show on 8Ball Radio, and distributes a satirical newsletter. Auto Body will call yet another mechanics garage home for the summer of 2019, hosting shows out of 11 Station Road in Bellport, NY.
