DESCRIPTION

 

“Men on Maps”

Curated by Barry Kostrinsky

 

Opening Reception:  Friday, September 5, 5-9pm

 

What do you think of when you see the New York City subway map?  

Is it a guide, a diagram, a riddle? Is it a canvas?

“Men on Maps” explores the unique aesthetic responses of over 50 male artists when presented with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s map of the New York City subway system as a base upon which to create: the blank canvas is replaced with a loaded image for each artist to interpret and transform.

Various mediums including audio, collage, drawing, painting, photography, video, and other forms fill both Gallery I and II.
