Argentinian newcomer Balvanera is again tapping the creative services of local artist and designer Mike Brown. Seven months after the tango scene of “An Allegory of Soul” was commissioned for the corner of Stanton and Suffolk Streets, a new show is planned for the premises. One that will feature iPhone photography of the Lower East Side.
The two-part show, “Pure Gold,” is slated to grace Balvanera for much of the summer. Part I: LES debuts on June 15.
“Balvanera is undoubtedly my Local,” says Brown. “And there’s no better place for me to debut my photography of the stories I see unfold across the Lower East Side and New York City itself.”

PURE GOLD is a two-part exhibition of the visual stories Mike Brown sees unfold in architectural spaces around New York. Part I: LES (June 15 – July 12, 2015) and Part II: NYC (July 13 – August 7, 2015) showcase a personal eye for playful wit and magical grace. Inspired by Italo Calvino’s Invisible Cities, PURE GOLD is Mike Brown’s first solo exhibition of photography – a collection of imaginary visual dialogues sparked by the spaces in between, all shot on his iPhone. Signed Limited Edition Prints of the work are available for purchase.
