Is Pawel Althamer a Manic Pixie Dream Girl?
Art F City has put together a panel in collaboration with Skowhegan and the Artist Studio Affordability Project (A.S.A.P.) on the subject of studio affordability in NYC. We’ve got a fantastic list of people coming out to to talk about these issues including Hunter Professor of Urban Affairs and Planning Tom Angotti, artists or organizers Jenny Dubnau and Shawn Gallagher, Deputy Brooklyn Borough President Diana Reyna and Art F City’s own Paddy Johnson as moderator. If finding affordable studio space in New York has been an issue for you or anyone you know, you need to attend this panel.
After the tide of art fairs and biennials last week, we get a lighter events listing this week. For those of you interested in luxury, there’s Gagosian’s exhibition of Chinese antiques—a strange choice for a contemporary art gallery. We’re going to William Powhida’s solo exhibition at Postmasters for a dose of art-as-criticism and checking out Smack Mellon’s open studios for a glimpse into what artists are working on outside of the galleries.
