The Museum of the City of New York Presents JEFF CHIEN-HSING LIAO'S NEW YORK: ASSEMBLED REALITIES, Now thru 2/15
by BWW News Desk - Oct 15, 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 today, October 15 and remains on view until Sunday, February 15, 2015.

New Exhibit Exploring Guastavino Structural Tiles Opens 3/26 at City Museum
by Tyler Peterson - Feb 25, 2014

The Museum of the City of New York announces Palaces for the People: Guastavino and the Art of Structural Tile, an exhibition showcasing the architectural beauty and engineering strength of spaces created by Spanish immigrants Rafael Guastavino and his son, Rafael Jr., who immigrated to New York from Barcelona in the late 19th century. Their legacy can be seen in thin-tile structural vaults hidden in plain sight throughout New York City, including Grand Central Terminal and the famous Oyster Bar, the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine, the Ellis Island Registry Hall, the Elephant House at the Bronx Zoo, the Boathouse and Tennis Shelter in Prospect Park, and many more. Once widely influential and sought out by McKim, Mead & White and other leading architects of the day, the Guastavino Company is now almost forgotten despite the millions of people who pass through spaces defined by their design.
