4. Cass Bird

Cass Bird's warm, intrepid depiction of her subjects provides new insight into the gritty exuberance of contemporary love and life. Her unforgettable vision has garnered the artist great acclaim. Following her initial success in the A&C "Festival for the Emerging Artists" (NY), Bird's solo exhibition of her series "Utopia" at Deitch Projects (NY) proves a sensation. Most recently her work has been shown at Macro Future (Museo d'Arte Contemporanea di Roma), "New York Minute" as well as Palazzo Cavour in Turin, Italy and two major consecutive shows of at The Brooklyn Museum, which has acquired Bird's work for its permanent collection. Her photographs are featured regularly in magazines such as The New Yorker, Details, Dossier, Paper, and Rolling Stone, as well as in campaigns produced by Converse, Levi's, Sony, and Nike. Cass made her directorial debut with a film for Sophomore, and then continued to go on to produce work for Levi's, Lissy Trullie, The Raveonettes, and Sky Ferreira.
