New exhibition opening at the Barnes Foundation on June 30th:

Mohamed Bourouissa: Urban Riders features approximately 85 works—including drawings, photos, costumes, sculptures, and a video—many presented for the first time in the United States. Since 2002, Bourouissa (b. 1978, Algeria; lives and works in Paris) has been developing a photography practice, drawing, and creating video rooted in social reality. Working primarily with representations of a contemporary urban environment, he is interested in the stereotypes associated with geographic and social spaces. Be among the first to see the exhibition by attending the Opening Party on Friday, June 30 from 6:00-9:00 p.m.
