JUDE BROUGHAN - ATHENREE
Jan 06, 2017 — Feb 25, 2017
Benrubi Gallery is pleased to present Athenree, the gallery’s first solo exhibition by Brooklyn-based artist, Jude Broughan. Athenree is a tiny beach town in the coastal Bay of Plenty, in the artist’s native New Zealand. It was named after the Northern Irish ‘townland’ that is home to the monolithic Athenree Portal Tomb. Revealing an interest in the process of traveling and the concomitant instability of ‘place,’ Broughan’s new works state their claim on the here and now while simultaneously questioning exactly where and when this might be.
