LOOK in the Windows™

February 1 - December 31

Free

Look in the Windows™ — a stARTling Public Space™ project was founded by kHyal of fiZz Agency, MegaGlam and SECTION; and incubated with Karl Heine of creativeplacement, SoNo Spaces and DesignerJournals. kHyal and Karl have developed personal and public storefront projects and events for over ten years and have been hired by municipalities, non-profits, universities, arts organizations and private clients to invigorate and educate audiences while stimulating local economies with economic development initiatives.

In 2018, they will be producing the internationally curated series, LOOK in the Windows, in the storefront of Heine’s talent agency at 13 North Main Street in South Norwalk, CT, where the team branded and launched a coworking space in 2010 as “SoNo Spaces” and that Heine manages independently.

kHyal, an internationally exhibited artist, designer and curator had been creating art installations in Heine’s storefront for years, and suggested to Heine that they give other artists the opportunity. A pioneer of technology-based and experiential installation art in the 80s, kHyal also worked commercially with the team at Metropolitan interactive on the digital signage systems installed throughout the new Whitney Museum of American Art in 2015. She is expert in on-demand textile and apparel printing and an established creator of wearable art, having developed a unique position in her work that explores the notion of art for, and about, the burgeoning international art fair markets including Art Basel. kHyal’s apparel has been featured in T — the New York Times style magazine, on NBC News and Fox News, in Trillionaire, Art Forum, Nylon, The Wall Street Journal and numerous other media outlets. And, was chosen by former America’s Top Model judge, Kelly Cutrone, as a runway favorite in an art fashion show curated and produced by Cutrone. kHyal’s product line, some in collaboration with Heine’s DesignerJournals company, have been sold in P!Q stores in Grand Central Terminal and Rockefeller Center in New York, Universal Walk in Orlando and Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas; as well as New York Comic Con. In 2016, she was selected by the technology company Meural for a solo show of her digital work at the Con Artist Collective on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, which helped spark the idea for LOOK in the Windows.

Kicking off the series in February is the Australian-based artist known as CUPCO, who has also lived and worked extensively in Japan. In March, Montreal native Carole Guevin will be featured, the founder of Netdiver.net, a design and digital culture magazine launched in 1998. Guevin is considered by many as the pioneering curator of the creative community, she is also a powerful and prolific designer and artist. Los Angeles-based photographer, Iris Ray, will be on view in April.

The new installations will be mostly digital, using the Meural Canvases procured through the company’s artist program, some will include analog installations and physical art and products, depending on the artist.

More information on these featured artists will be released prior to their installation dates, and artist applications for consideration in future installations will be available by mid-January 2018.
