Jean Barberis is a maker, an artist, and a curator but he rarely makes a distinction between the various aspects of his practice. A native of Provence, Barberis co-founded Flux Factory’s gallery space and Arts Collective. He likes to engage artists in the curatorial process, foster collaborations, and encourage the production of ambitious new works. His interests are vast and varied and include urban exploration, shoemaking, boat building, and engaging in exchanges and economies outside of the confines of capitalism. Collaborators have included EFA project space, the arts collective Rabid Hands, Swimming Cities, and Mare Liberum. Sponsored by the Program in Studio Art, the College’s Committee on the Arts and the Christian A. Johnson Enrichment Fund. Free and open to the public.
