DOWNTOWN NEST: Unlike most artists whose big break tends to be in a solo gallery show or museum representation, Ari Tabei is breaking through in a Meatpacking District boutique. The Brooklynite’s exhibition is up at the Rebecca & Drew store at West 13th Street through July 19. She is the first winner of the Emerging Artist Award presented by Sprout, a nonprofit funded by Rebecca & Drew to turn the spotlight on new talent and to provide them with a commercial audience. A performance artist, videographer and photographer, Tabei’s work consists of garments and bags that she transforms into nests or cocoons. She was chosen by a jury made up of representatives from a variety of institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum.
