Current Exhibitions

The "Project Diversity" exhibition encompasses 200 Brooklyn artists and 16 Brooklyn galleries. I am only paraphrasing here to tell you about the 2 shows I am in! It is worth looking at the list because you have probably not heard of most of them. If you want further info about all of the exhibitions please go to :

Project Diversity was created to help us unite audiences and artists across lines of ethnicity, gender, age and neighborhood. This multi-venue exhibition will also celebrate Brooklyn's tremendous diversity, cultural vision and cutting-edge style. Project Diversity was conceived by artist and Brooklyn gallery owner Danny Simmons, cofounder of Rush Philantrophic Arts Foundation, and developed in partnership with the borough's key cultural leaders.

Artist's Statement

Alexandra Limpert was raised on the upper west side of Manhattan and has resided in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for over a decade. She earned her BFA in Sculpture at The Parsons School of Design, New York, NY. Along with great art Limpert’s metropolis encompasses the rise and fall of many manmade structures. As a result the artist’s sparse sculptures appear to be both exalted and eroded.

Despite eons of figurative art, Limpert still sees the human body as unbroken ground. Steel is her primary medium due to its raw elegance as a building material. Her skeletal relics resemble an entity that has consumed itself, leaving only traces behind like ancient Greek or Roman statuary. Sculpting beyond the obvious Limpert strips the exterior of the female form to expose its inverse complexity.

The inner workings of some of Limpert’s pieces are further expressed by mechanical motion. The artist’s influences lie in her surroundings as well as in childhood toys and science fiction. Rather than simulating robots the sculptures have repetitive internal movements. These figures are at once playful and austere. Limpert considers this to be her most challenging work so far.
