Alt Space is a gallery, shop, and the spatial manifestation of Alt Citizen. Offering cutting-edge fashion, independent art & music, and refreshing monthly exhibitions and events to a growing collective of creatives and consumers alike. Last week Alt Space hosted a Dreamy Picnic for the launch of Jump From Paper bags featuring five different artist all under the age of 20.
The show titled ‘The Day Dreamers’ was curated by Grace Miceli, founder of Art Baby Gallery and one of Alt Space curators.
The gallery was transformed into a green grassy field with fluffy flashing clouds at your arms reach.
The walls playfully decorated with Jump From Paper’s new Spring 2016 campaign, shot by Charlotte Rutherford along with the new collection of the oh so cool bags. The gallery felt nothing less than magical and the art was just as whimsical featuring five artists Tyler Mitchell, Daisy Sanchez, Lula Hyers, Terrell Davis, and Remi Riordan. It was easy to feel on cloud nine.
The night included dancing to the nostalgic vibes by the girls from Cult Records, strawberry lemonade, juice boxes, cupcakes and pixie sticks. The artsy crowd quickly filled the space with pink gift bags, stuffed with “support young art” pins, Alt Space stickers, Art Baby prints and Alt Citizen swag! The entire evening felt nearly perfect, made you wonder if it was all just a dream?
