Jean Barberis, a native of France, came to New York in 2000 to learn a few things and has never left. He is a well-travelled young man and a jack of all trades. Barberis is co-founder of Flux Factory’s gallery space and arts collective. As a curator, his interests are wide and his curiosity unbound. He likes to engage artists in the curatorial process, and to foster collaborations and encourage the production of ambitious new works.
