Critical 5 art events this week in NYC: walking distance, December 12-15
Trekking from Midtown to downtown to everywhere in between can get exhausting, even for New Yorkers.
This week, give your legs a break and check out five exhibits all within a (short) walking distance from one another. Art is going micro local.
David Humphrey's new work is now on display at Fredericks & Freiser Gallery. New Paintings combines a variety of painting techniques with a variety of public images, like ones found one Facebook, to create a jarring, comedic, and unique experience.
About a three minute walk away, the School of Visual Arts is honoring its inaugural graduating class of the MPS Fashion Photography Department. Opening Thursday, the exhibit showcases the work of the students who got the chance to work with the "most creative people in the business."
Keep those walking shoes moving and head over to the Jeff Bailey Gallery for Jackie Gendel's exhibition. Comedy of Manners plays with repetition to recreate and slightly alter each scene from the last. Your eyes will be put to the test, so it's a good thing your legs will be rested.
Homosexuality Is Stalin's Atom Bomb to Destroy America is Yevgeniy Fiks' third solo exhibition and explores the parallels between Communism and sexual identity. Intriguing.
Finish up your walking tour of all things art with minimalist perfection. Alex Kanevsky's Some Drawings at J. Cacciola Gallery is ending soon. The exhibit highlights the pencil and the paper and is stunning in its seemingly simplicity.
