We would like to congratulate Atrium Artist Lore Bert on her 80th birthday which is being celebrated with an International traveling show. These shows will carry the general title “In the Vortex of Cultures – Fragile Values.” The work in each of the participating cities will be customized to the physical spaces and interests of the Directors and Curators in that place. Each exhibition will feature recent works as well as works relating to the geography and culture of the hosting city. We are so excited to be presenting her work titled “30 Lillies” in Atrium’s current show titled “From the Racks.” This work depicts an arrangement of Fleur de Lis, the symbol of our wonderful city St. Louis. The current leg of Bert’s international solo exhibition tour is being held at the Galería Ethra in Mexico City and will run from September 24th to October 18th 2016. This show represents her first major solo exhibition in North America after having great success in Europe including inclusion in the 2013 Venice Biennale.
