April 6th: First Friday – Exhibition by Koko Bayer
Artist Koko Bayer has blanketed the Denver metro area with temporary works featuring her grandfather Herbert Bayer's world renowned art. Koko lives and works in the RiNo Art District and focuses on "wheatpasting," a technique for temporarily attaching paper to walls. She emphasizes the nuance of temporary art structures. Leveraging her late grandfather design components to create new works. Koko photographs her installations and re-pastes the images onto wood or other found structures.
The RiNo Art District hired Koko to produce the large scale piece "in Search of Times Past on Wazee" that graces their new offices adjacent to the new RiNo Made store. “I loved creating this new piece just a few feet from where I did my first wheatpaste installations. My old studio was in the Wazee Union building that sat on this spot before Zeppelin Station" said Koko.
The art district is also featuring Koko’s work in the main gallery space with an exhibition of her Pink Lemonade hands and prints of the new RiNo Guide cover that highlights the four historic neighborhoods the art district is a part of. The exhibition will run through April of 2018 with a reception on First Friday, April 6th from 6-9pm.
