80wse Galleries is pleased to present Windows Promos, a collaborative exhibition by artists Ronnie Bass, Tommy Hartung, and Georgia Sagri. This exhibition will be presented in both the Broadway Windows and Washington Square Windows spaces.
For the exhibition Georgia Sagri will design and utilize the storefront windows as a public venue for Ronnie Bass’s and Tommy Hartung’s upcoming projects. The artists’ projects are slated for release in the fall. One project promoted in the Windows Gallery is titled Victor School. This is a non-accredited, on-line academy founded by Ronnie Bass and Tommy Hartung.
The other project promoted is The PBS Art21 Telethon. This is a one-evening fundraising event intended to both raise money for and promote Art21’s new artist documentary series, New York Up Close. The Windows exhibition was created as a task-based system. Bass and Hartung have provided images, information and video clips of the upcoming projects to Georgia Sagri. Sagri has acted as the production consultant and advertiser of their projects.
