The Museum of the City of New York Presents JEFF CHIEN-HSING LIAO'S NEW YORK: ASSEMBLED REALITIES, 10/15-2/15
by BWW News Desk - September 22, 2014

The Museum of the City of New York presents Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao's New York: Assembled Realities,featuring more than 40 large-scale panoramic photographs of the City's urban landscape by Taiwanese artist Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao, who came to New York to study photography in 1999 at the age of 18. Pushing the boundaries of traditional documentary photography, Liao (b. 1977) creates large-scale panoramas by combining multiple exposures of the same location taken over the course of several hours. The resulting composite photographs are often fantastical-complex, hyper-real views that no single shot-or the eye-could capture. Liao has spent the past decade honing his distinctive style, making images of his adopted city from the Grand Concourse to Coney Island, the old Shea Stadium to the 72nd Street Subway. Jeff Chien-Hsing Liao's New York: Assembled Realities opens on Wednesday, October 15 and remains on view until Sunday, February 15, 2015. (more...)

'COLLECTORS III: Discerning Eyes' at New Bedford Art Museum/Artworks
by BWW News Desk - September 20, 2014

Curated by Robert P. Stack and Vanphouthon Souvannasane of Yellow Peril Gallery, 'COLLECTORS III: Discerning Eyes' at New Bedford Art Museum/Artworks! presents early works from contemporary art collectors based in Providence (RI), New York (NY), Miami (FL), and Caguas (PR) who are ahead of the curve at distinguishing the good from the bad and sifting out the gems from the junk. 'With this exhibit, we aim to open up the conversation with regard to Whom and What,' says Stack. 'One doesn't have to wait for that winning lottery ticket to begin including art in your life. Collecting can and should commensurate with your lifestyle. Likewise,' he adds, 'collecting should not be limited to wall-hung visual art. Video, street art, light art, installation art and performance art are all collectible in today's market.' Whether the artwork was pried off the all from a dilapidated building, purchased directly from the artist, performed in front on an intimate crowd of 10 people or taken from the trunk of a fledging art dealer in the streets of SoHo, many of the works presented in 'Discerning Eyes' have never been seen by the general public until now. 'The people invited to share their collections are from ordinary backgrounds with extraordinary tastes,' notes Souvannasane. 'They include a museum guard, advertising executive, architect, real estate developer, doctor and lawyer.' 'COLLECTORS III: Discerning Eyes' will be on display at New Bedford Art Museum/Artworks! from September 26 to November 16. Several site-specific installations will be presented by Philippe Lejeune and Jessica Deane Rosner. Featured Programming includes: · Opening Reception > Friday, September 26, 6PM - 8PM Special Performance by Richard Goulis. Free admission. · Performance is an Art > October 16, 7PM - 9PM Liz Munsell, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at MFA, Boston presents 4 live performances by artists Ian Deleón, Shey Rivera Ríos, Quintín Rivera Toro and Anabel Vázquez Rodríguez.

Register online, call or visit the museum. Family members are encouraged to join their kids in experiencing these fun activities. Ages 6-9 years. · Film Screening of Herb & Dorothy > Thursday, October 23, 7PM - 9PM This documentary features Herbert and Dorothy Vogel, a former postal clerk and a librarian, who built a world-class collection of Minimal and Conceptual Art with their modest salaries. Free admission. · Thrill of the Hunt > Thursday, November 6, 7PM - 8PM Panel discussion on demystifying the art collecting process Panelists include: Judith Tolnick Champa, Independent Curator, Art Writer & Board Member, New England Museum Association; Cassie Sammartino Berg, Contemporary Art Collector; and Robert P.
