About Jean Barberis:

I'm a maker, an artist, and Flux Factory's artistic Director.

I'm far from a professional, traditional shoemaker. I'm completely self-taught and I believe in sharing skills and learning by teaching.

The Gowanus Studio Space


In an era when art encompasses infinite amalgams of visual media, The Gowanus Studio Space encourages inter-disciplinary exchange and provides affordable access to facilities for artists and designers.  Offering exhibition, curation and production opportunities, the studio is an incubator for new ideas and an inroad to today's insular art world.  

The GSS' 40+ members rent low-cost studios and storage and have 24-hour access to a woodshop, print studio and large common workspace.  GSS was established with little funding in industrial Gowanus in 2007, and is now in the final stage of an ambitious move to a new 7500 sq-ft home.
