The summer is flying by and on this lovely (and yes, breezy!) day, we are fueled up for the next round of summer in NYC gallery openings. Here at ArtBinder we don’t like to miss a beat, so we are making sure you are looped in every step of the way! Spanning east to west, this week’s openings are small in numbers, yet powerful in presence.
The Must See’s:
Starting from the east side at the New Museum on the Bowery, “The Keeper” in partnership with The Teddy Bear Project displays over 3,000 family photographs of people posing with their teddy bears, an archive of “hoarders” objects all exploring a safe haven for physical memories.
While you are enjoying your stroll through Washington Square Park, cruise down 8th street to the prestigious New York Studio School Alumni Exhibition. Famous graduates include Alex Katz, Philip Guston and Willem de Kooning. The exhibition will feature six graduates including Christopher Wool.
Finally, Kate Werble Gallery brings us an group-exhibition that is explores how technology has become an extension of ourselves, reaching so far as to our dependency on our devices in relation to sex and the selfie.
Here’s how to use the Gallery Guide:
- The map’s various colors represent different days of the week. For a key, click on the arrow icon next to the map title.
- For example, to see galleries with openings on the weekend only, first click on the arrow icon. If you uncheck every box except Saturday and Sunday, you will only see the galleries with weekend receptions.
- Click on a marker to find out more information! A side bar will appear showing the gallery and exhibition name, as well as other useful tidbits.
- To prevent confusion for galleries in the same building, the marker takes a different shape for every overlapping venue.
