What Looks Back at Us on View at Taymour Grahne Gallery

Those in need of some cultural enlightenment should head to TriBeCa’s Taymour Grahne Gallery for What Looks Back at Us, a solo exhibition by French-Algerian artist Fayçal Baghriche, featuring Atlas Series, his brand new body of work.

On view thru June 27, and titled after its namesake, the Atlas Mountains, the series showcases photographs of the site, which is rich in sought-after minerals and semi-precious stones. Along a travel path through the mountains, locals sell imitations of these rocks to tourists, unearthing colorless and valueless quartz Geodes, and dying their interiors in vibrant colors, in order to appeal to the masses and demand high prices.

In the lower level gallery, Baghriche’s work The Message Project is presented alongside works from his Family Friendly Series.
