Gallery Talk | Made in New York City: The Business of Folk Art: Exhibition Tour


Folk art has flourished in the heart of New York City since the eighteenth century, contrary to popular belief that it was a rural genre that reflected local tastes, traditions, and needs. Around 100 works of art by self-taught artists tell the story about New York City as the center of America’s financial and commercial world from two perspectives simultaneously: “The Art of Business” portrays the people and places that were part of the city’s thrumming commercial life, and “The Business of Art” highlights the diverse mediums and formats used by the artists, artisans, and manufacturers. This tour of the exhibition is conducted by museum gallery guides.

Opening Reception | Gyro Dance: A High-Energy Feast for the Mind


A solo exhibition of works by Miao Xiaochun (b. 1964), a central figure in China’s wave of new media art. This exhibition consists of painting, sculpture, and animated video works, which represent over a decade’s exploration and experimentation in response to the increasing acceptance of a new breed of subversive technologies - particularly 3D printing. Gyro Dance is a high-energy feast for the mind as much as for the senses - it is a futuristic manifestation which raises timeless questions, especially at a time when the sheer amount of sensory amazement often prevents works with depth to be made and accepted in this young field.

In this modern production, find the community of Messina celebrating a break from an ongoing war.
