Exhibition: Here and Now: Portraits of New York — Closes
December 12–17, 2017
Students in the Art Market Studies MA program hold an off-campus thesis exhibition at Chinatown Soup Gallery, 16 Orchard Street, in Manhattan. The exhibition, titled Here and Now: Portraits of New York, opened Tuesday, December 12.
People are reborn in New York City. The portraits will represent the identities of New Yorkers, their values and culture. Our exhibition will be showcasing the freedoms the city offers. Everyone in the city is unique. Here and Now: Portraits of New York will present distinctive works in various media by emerging artists. Small-run editions will encourage accessibility and a discussion that extends beyond a restricted art world. The curation is concerned with questions of historical ownership, market participation, and alternative modes of distribution.
This multifaceted group of artists, working in painting, photography, sculpture, and material items will capture the face of New York now and very likely in the future. Here and Now: Portraits of New York will bring new artists to New Yorkers, and bring as well New Yorkers to each other, letting us all see each other as portraits.
