> DESCRIPTION

Overstimulated is a student-curated takeover of a commercial retail space in lower Manhattan's South Street Seaport, only a few blocks from the student's university: PACE. A bridge project pulling from the student's own work to those of their mentors and professors, and extending the collaborators that the student's have been experimenting with outside of the university, this large scale group show of peers, faculty, and friends represents and celebrates the transition from campus life into the hustling New York art-world.

Almost 50 participating artists with work ranging from fabric installations, interactive sculptures, live painting, photography, film, collage, drawings, and digital illustrations create an immersive environment to explore and lose yourself in throughout the week's packed schedule of events filled with live music, theater, poetry, and film screenings.
