About the Artist

 

Hosted by Meyer Vogl Gallery and curated by art advisor Lara A. Björk, Bicoastal brings a selection of works by internationally renowned contemporary artists to Charleston.



 



The works in Bicoastal have been selected by Björk, founder of Von Rudebeck Art Advisory in New York City. “This is a unique opportunity to bring a selection of emerging contemporary artists from New York and Los Angeles to Charleston,” she says.



 



Artists who will show their work in the exhibition include Daniel Gordon, Matthew Porter, Nevine Mahmoud, Jay Miriam, Katherine Bernhardt, Jess Fuller, Adrianne Rubinstein, Marisa Takal, Alex Chaves, and Anne W. Björk.



 



Charleston has played a large role in Björk’s life since she was an infant. “Charleston culture is deeply rooted in my life and a large part of who I am today,” she says. “It is exciting to be able to return the favor, by bringing artists from the cities in which I now live and work to the burgeoning and dynamic collectors of Charleston and Meyer Vogl Gallery.” 



 



Art has been a big part of Björk’s life, too. “I was raised in the art world and grew up in my mother’s studio, watching her career develop firsthand. Thus, working with and placing artwork by the artists from my generation has been a large, and very important part of my career.”
