Exhibition: Here and Now: Portraits of New York — Opens
December 12, 2017
December 12–17, 2017
Reception: Tuesday, December 12, 6-8 pm
Students in the Art Market Studies MA program hold an off-campus thesis exhibition at Chinatown Soup Gallery, 16 Orchard Street, in Manhattan.
People are reborn in New York City. The portraits represent the identities of New Yorkers, their values and culture. The exhibition showcases the freedoms the city offers. Everyone in the city is unique. Here and Now: Portraits of New York presents distinctive works in various media by emerging artists. Small-run editions 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 capture the face of New York now and very likely in the future. The exhibition brings new artists to New Yorkers, and brings New Yorkers to each other, letting us all see each other as portraits.
