On September 25th at 6 pm, the group exhibition Elymus Repens, a proposal by Lucile Bouvard, opens at Bar Babette in Berlin, presenting works by Lorenzo Sandoval and Alice Morey, among others.
End of September, Bar Babette will have to leave its legendary building on Karl-Marx-Allee. Over its 15 years of existence, it has become an institution and a gathering place for the many crossing communities of Berlin’s art scene.
In this phase of change and transition, the exhibition Elymus Repens pays a homage to Bar Babette’s relentless artistic activism and furthermore to the vivacity and diversity of Berlin’s off-space flora. The show will gather Berlin-based artists, who have created spaces to initiate dialogues and give visibility to the works of other artists. It will focus on their works as well as on their role as curators, initiators or art activists. Each of them is solicited to invite another artist, who they have previously shown or want to show.
