Ilegal Mezcal and Gramercy Park Hotel’s Rose Bar Present: “Explore the Expansions of Space” by artist Ruvan

November 13 @ 12:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Ruvan makes art to awaken senses and challenge the idea of space. Explore the Expansion of Space, Ruvan’s first exhibition with Ilegal Mezcal and Gramercy Park Hotel includes interactive investigations into perspectives – placing you in reality, virtual reality and the space in between, augmented reality.

Each photograph taken at the coordinates 21° N 87° W captures the timeless essence of the location and its setting. The images place the viewer into Ruvan’s gaze into the skies, through the plants and over the sea of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, known as an energy vortex.

Explore the Expansion of Space, is a place that questions reality and offers participants the space to escape from the city. At 31 Perry, the room is equipped with comfortable mattresses on the floor which entice you lie down and to relax. Scattered in the space are large cushions reading poetic statements: YOUR BRAIN IS A PROCESSOR and EXPLORE THE EXPANSION OF SPACE.

The opening of the showcase will take place on Nov. 2nd from 7 to 10pm, where Ruvan will debut his new photo book, Yucatán.

The exhibition will remain open Monday – Friday from 12 – 6pm until November 16.
