DESCRIPTION

The Artists at Home and Abroad exhi­bi­tion series is a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of both emerg­ing and estab­lished artists on an inter­na­tional scale. This exhibit incorporates a vast range of con­tem­po­rary image mak­ing. The artists included in this exhibit explore modern and postmodern approaches in an incredibly exciting fashion. Curated by Abraham Lubelski this exhibit presents a group of artists on the edge of contemporary art.

Globalization creates unexpected relationships and contrasts in contemporary art.  This series focuses on the sig­nif­i­cance of exhibit­ing a vari­ety of works in a plu­ral­is­tic art world. Inspired by salon-style hang­ing, most com­monly attrib­uted to the Salon de Paris held dur­ing the 18th and 19th cen­turies; Broad­way Gallery NYC con­tin­ues this legacy with a con­tem­po­rary and fresh out­look. Fol­low­ing a trend of pre­vi­ous exhi­bi­tions at Broad­way Gallery NYC, this show pays trib­ute to the for­mat of a salon hang­ing. It is a tra­di­tion that awak­ens con­tem­po­rary cul­ture to a dynamic collective consciousness.  A few notable themes in this exhibit that cross cultures are romanticism, spirituality, and humanity.

Part of an ongoing series, Artists at Home and Abroad reaches out to the diverse community of New York.  In addi­tion to the exhi­bi­tion on dis­play at Broad­way Gallery NYC, are sev­eral con­cur­rent Inter­net projects, and a print cat­a­log. Fur­ther­more, this exhibit offers writ­ers and view­ers an excit­ing oppor­tu­nity to sub­mit essays and com­ments on the nature and sig­nif­i­cance of bien­ni­als, fairs and pub­lic expo­sure for new and emerging artists.

This exhibit uses the space as another medium altogether; incorporating 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. These artists have trans­formed the gallery walls into a com­pendium of gen­er­a­tional takes on fig­u­ra­tion, por­trai­ture, and abstrac­tion. Visitors will be surprised to see the stunning results.
