Coming together from around the world, each artists’ confidence in their narrative and approach is effectively cool.

“Cool begins with individuals who choose to define themselves on their own terms, outside the agreed upon norms of society, and ends with the very establishment that they rejected admiring and emulating their attitude and style. Cool people are responsible for cultural work. The artists featured in New York Cool have created their own distinctive styles, and in the process, have given their works ‘personality’ despite impersonal appearances.”
