IFAC @The Yard Lower East Side
85 Delancey Street, 2nd - 3rd Floor
New York, NY 10002

IFAC is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of Los Angeles based artist Simone Gad.

Animaux Rescues, a series of 30 new works on paper which present expressive and
spontaneous portraits of rescued pets and offer a subtle metaphor on the human condition.
Gad’s dogs, cats, and bunnies, many found on rescued animal pages on the Internet, are
personally cathartic and a way for her to shelter the found images by incorporating
and immortalizing them into her work.
