The Artists at Home and Abroad exhi­bi­tion series is a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of both emerg­ing and estab­lished artists on an inter­na­tional scale. Explor­ing every­thing from the inter­sec­tion of abstrac­tion and fig­u­ra­tion to the sig­nif­i­cance of high and low art, each par­tic­i­pant cre­ates an entirely dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive within the cul­tural sphere of the art world.

Inspired by salon-style hang­ing, most com­monly attrib­uted to the Salon de Paris held dur­ing the 18th and 19th cen­turies, the show intends to pro­vide patrons of the arts with an invit­ing, inti­mate view­ing expe­ri­ence to ini­ti­ate a dia­logue between artists, their work and the viewer. Fol­low­ing a trend of pre­vi­ous exhi­bi­tions at Broad­way Gallery NYC, this show pays trib­ute to the for­mat of a salon hang­ing and cel­e­brates the tra­di­tion that con­tin­ues to ren­der expo­si­tions of a large num­bers of artists and an even larger num­bers of works.

The Artists at Home and Abroad exhi­bi­tion will be on dis­play at Broad­way Gallery NYC, in con­junc­tion with sev­eral Inter­net projects, and a print cat­a­log. The exhibit will offer writ­ers and view­ers the chance to sub­mit essays and com­ments on the nature and sig­nif­i­cance of bien­nials, fairs and pub­lic expo­sure for new and emerg­ing artists. Fea­tur­ing many artists work­ing with both new and old medi­ums, the Artists at Home and Abroad exhi­bi­tion offers a plat­form for artists, cura­tors, gal­lerists as well as writ­ers to voice their ideas on the contempo­rary art world.

Uti­liz­ing the max­i­mum floor-to-ceiling gallery space acti­vates the wall with art­works in var­i­ous media by artists, each of whom offer a unique per­spec­tive to the show. Estab­lished, inno­v­a­tive, and emerg­ing artists have con­tributed a body of nearly one hun­dred fifty works of art reflect­ing an impres­sive range of the­o­ries, gen­er­a­tions, styles and dis­tinc­tive visual expression.

In order to syn­the­size numer­ous lan­guages spo­ken through var­i­ous artis­tic dis­ci­plines, the two long walls in par­al­lel are care­fully installed to cre­ate dia­logue in the spa­tial order. Artists at Home and Abroad allows the viewer access to some of the past and cur­rent piv­otal artis­tic ideas while intro­duc­ing newer tal­ent, to gen­er­ate fresh cre­ative energy through unex­pected juxtapositions.
