Affected by the rawness of the walk down an unfinished staircase featuring the original plaster walls, exposed and weathered concrete floors, Below Constructions is a presentation of works by five artists who allow surfaces to act as their medium– exploring the “here and now” of art making materials. When completion doesn’t involve a conventional finishing or framing of the art object, but rather an affirmation of the reality of the object itself, the studio’s tool box becomes evident, and a glimpse of the worktable made visible.
In honor of NYC BID Day and NYCxDesign 2023, The School of Visual Arts and NYCxDesign unveiled Art History 101: A Brush with Fashion, presented by students of the Design Department at the School of Visual Arts under the direction of Professor Kevin T. O’Callaghan. The installations are on view from 61st Street to 77th Street along Madison Avenue. The exhibit has been extended to July 8, 2023.
