DPA will be in company with collaborators Lydia Rodrigues of LRC and metal worker & artist Julia Murray.
Stop by for eco-restorative bouquets; natural dye works made with indigo, fruits of city trees, and compost; live fittings/choreographic alterations; DPA wearable archive pieces; and a selection curated by LRC to pair with your new (or existing!) DPA. Julia Murray's hand bent, welded metal hangers will be showcased and dressed with shop items.
Athena Kokoronis studies regenerative life cycles of materials, space and human relationships through hospitality, dance, and collaboration. DPA is a brand used to hold Kokoronis' process-based work as an artist, performer, mother, choreographer, chef, and designer.
Lydia Rodrigues is an artist based in the LES, NYC. Her vision and eye is translated into her bi-annual salon, and is the vehicle for the foundational world of LYDIA RODRIGUES COLLECTION (LRC).
Julia Murray is a journeyman ironworker. She is known for public works such as repairing the Brooklyn Bridge and repairing the George Washington bridge cables. She worked with Carol Bove with the large-scale facade works of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In her own studio, her practice is delicate intermingling of fine lace, neon illuminations and heavy metals that range from highly functional to abstract gestures.
