A Dance with Life & Death is Alexis de Chaunac's first NYC Solo Exhibition in a gallery following the artist's two recent museum exhibitions held in Mexico at the Pinacoteca Diego Rivera in Xalapa (2015) and at the Museo Iconografico del Quijote in Guanajuato (2014).
The works on exhibit in "A Dance with Life & Death" are all works on paper set against a backdrop of intuitions and insights gleaned from embryology, anthropology, mythology and medicine. Creating hybrid works grounded in his own quest for identity (which spans New York City, Mexico and Paris), Alexis de Chaunac searches out artifacts from different cultures for archetypal links between the personal and the historical. ART 3 is a dynamic contemporary art gallery located in the heart of Bushwick's vibrant art scene district.
The exhibition starts Wednesday, September 16, and runs until October 25, 2015. The opening is Wednesday, September 16, from 6-9 pm, ART 3 gallery, 109 Ingraham St, Bushwick, NY.
Created by Silas Shabelewska, formerly of Haunch of Venison NY and Helly Nahmad Gallery NY, in partnership with Monika Fabijanska, former Director of the Polish Cultural Institute in New York, the gallery focuses on works by emerging and mid-career artists. Senior level Gallery Director & Gallery Manager, Silas Shabelewska is the former AVP, Gallery Manager of Haunch of Venison NY and the Helly Nahmad Gallery. At Haunch, she worked on exhibitions featuring Gunther Uecker, Chiharu Shiota-Marlene Mocquet, Kevin Grancis Gray, Doug Argue, Ahmed Alsoudani. At Helly Nahmad, she produced numerous exhibitions including the acclaimed Soutine Bacon curated by Maurice Tuchman and Esti Dunow (2011).

After 14 years of working for leading art galleries in New York, Shabelewska decided to create her own gallery: ART 3.
