EXHIBIT RECEPTION + PERFORMANCE
NOVEMBER 15th // 6-9pm
Special Performance 7:30pm
The Untitled Space has announced “ONLY YOU,” an exhibition of artwork featuring photography, sculpture, and video by artist Indira Cesarine, as well as a special exclusive performance inspired by the artwork by dance company Bryn Cohn + Artists. The exhibit will be on view from November 9 – 17th, with the one-time-only performance to coincide with Tribeca Art + Culture Night on November 15th. “ONLY YOU” is a conceptual narrative portrait series chronicling a woman’s emotions as she traverses an metaphorical landscape of love, loss and betrayal.
Each artwork is part of the greater narrative of her story and history of suffering that she experienced through her tragic relationship. The photography and sculpture featured in the series will be premiering for the first time at The Untitled Space. The video art version of “ONLY YOU” premiered in 2010 at an Art Basel Miami exhibition in collaboration with American Friends of The Louvre and Miami Art Museum. Since then, the piece has been screened internationally at venues including London’s Red Bull Studios in collaboration with Graffik Gallery, at an event for Cannes Film Festival in France, and at the Big Screen Plaza in Chelsea, New York. Artwork from “ONLY YOU” will additionally be featured at CICA Museum, South Korea as part of their January exhibition “Portrait 2018.”

A graduate of Columbia University with a triple major in Art History, French and Women’s Studies, she additionally studied art and photography at Parson’s School of Design, International Center of Photography, School of Visual Arts, The Art Students League and New York Academy of Art.
