The New York Times and the art world—and the world of art and craftsmanship—are more diverse than you think
By MICHAEL P. LEONARD and ANNA RICHARDSON New York, NY—April 15, 2017—For years, the New York City public art gallery has been home to a diverse set of artists, ranging from the avant-garde to the mainstream.
Now, with the addition of a new show called “Downtown” to the gallery’s regular calendar, it seems like the gallery is finally beginning to reflect the broader community.
“It was always about people from the neighborhood,” said curator Tanya O’Connor.
“We’re not looking to become a gallery of the arts, but rather a place that celebrates people who are from the arts.”
O’Connors show, which will open on March 18, is called “Tangled Up in Glass.”
“Downton Abbey” star James Gandolfini and comedian Amy Schumer will perform.
“Dress to impress,” will be one of the many slogans that will be printed on the walls.
The installation, which includes a number of works by artists including David Zwirner, is located in the New Museum of Art.
The show is being co-curated with the Museum of Modern Art, which commissioned the installation.
The exhibition will include works by the likes of Tanya Olney, Michael P. Leontard, and Michael M. Graziani.
It will be on view through March 23.
“Tangle Up in Glue” opens March 17 at the New Art Gallery of New York.
The gallery is located at 846 West 40th Street, in the Financial District.
