New Image Art is pleased to announce Joy Ride - a group exhibition in collaboration with Bicycle Film Festival and Anonymous Gallery, curated by Brendt Barbur, Joseph Ian Henrikson, and Tanya Arakawa Rosenstein. This multi-location exhibition brings together a select group of internationally established and emerging artists all who share a passion for the bicycle. Joy Ride is a visual manifestation of one of the most powerful and culturally relevant movements of this decade: the urban bike movement.

The artwork will be exhibited at 4 locations in New York City’s Soho and Lower East Side. Each venue will feature uniquely curated multimedia installations. Hungry March Band kicks off opening night at 6 PM with a performance in “the pit” at Sara D. Roosevelt Park on Chrystie Street and Broome Street. Joy Ride maps will be available at each location.

Joy Ride originated in 2005 as part of Bicycle Film Festival Los Angeles and since traveled to Paris, Tokyo, Toronto, Milano, San Francisco, New York, and London. Joy Ride 2009 is the most ambitious to date and will travel to 5 other cities including Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Austin, and Denver.

The festival will be in LA August 26-30. We'll see you there!!

About the BFF

Brendt Barbur, Founder and Director, was compelled to start the Bicycle Film Festival after getting hit by a bus while riding his bike in New York City in 2001. Instead of being deterred by this experience, it inspired him to create a festival that celebrates the bicycle through music, art, and film. Now in its ninth year the festival is held in 39 cities worldwide. 250,000 people are expected to attend.
