Critical 5 art events this week in NYC: interact with your art, Dec. 19-22
Who says all you can do is look at art? Besides all those curators we mean. But art this week lets you take a step closer and get your hand's dirty, figuratively speaking. It's time to interact with your art NYC.
Ann Hamilton's the event of a thread brings together readings, sounds, and a room full of swings to create a truly interactive experience. This installation-performance piece will have you running to the nearest playground, maybe.
Have some last minute Christmas shopping you need to get done? Check out Christine Hill's Small Business, an exhibit that's model after a German model store. "Browse" shelves of glass jars and plastic toys. You'll forget you're looking at art.
GO: a community-curated open studio project consists of artists who were nominated by the community and then chosen by Museum curators. The exhibit is meant to foster an exchange between Brooklyn-based artistes and their community members. Sounds pretty interactive to us.
Contribute your laugh to art this week at the performance of Nut/Cracked. A comic, slightly subversive, version of The Nutcracker, Nut/Cracked travels across dance genres to give you a lot of bang for your buck.
Okay, so you won't get away with touching anything in this exhibit, it does so the interactive process of creating. Bernini: Sculpting in Clay features the clay works Bernini used to work out his ideas for the many great, finalized marble sculptors he created.
