Attenborough Naftel (A/N) is an ongoing collaboration between Chris Attenborough (Baltimore) and Sean Naftel (New York). Having met in graduate school at the Burren College of Art in rural Ireland, Attenborough-Naftel began making situation-based installations in 2008. A/N has shown work at De Buck Gallery (New York), Monster Truck Gallery (Dublin), SEVEN Art Fair (Miami), Emerge Art Fair (Washington DC), Contemporary Museum (Baltimore), Jordan Faye Contemporary (Baltimore), and VOLTA Art Fair (New York). They were the featured artists from Queens for the television show ArtTrek NYC (2011). In 2012 they began collaborating with Union Craft Brewing in Baltimore. The collaboration developed into a limit edition beer, Pregame Session Ale, for their artwork Tailgate Man Cave. Their installation Yard Sale (2014) at De Buck Gallery was featured in the New York Times and on New York Public Radio (WNYC).
