EAF09 @ Socrates Sculpture Park

EAF (Emerging Artist Fellowship), not to be confused with EFA below, is Socrates Sculpture Park‘s program that provides artists with short-term residencies at the city’s only outdoor sculpture park with this group show opportunity. It’s always a blast, there’s always good art to see, and when the weather is nice the public come out in full force and really make a day of it!

The thing to note this year is there’s a lot of replication going on in sculpture @ Socrates. The replicated suggestive construction site and the to-standard MTA subway stop staircase are prime examples. Even the giant foam whale and red-resin city use pre-existing models or forms to build their art upon. Just a mention that many of the artists at EAF are thinking alike.

Arctic Book Club @ Flux Factory/EFA

Arctic Book Club was a collaboration between Flux Factory and the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts – the show took place at EFA’s space on 39th street in Manhattan, and the inspiring author behind this show, Tété Michel Kpomassie, was even in attendance!

Central Booking

Central Booking is a new book arts gallery located in DUMBO on Front Street. Great place, lots of paper and book arts to look at. This was their grand opening, and it was packed! I really recommend making a trip to see this show, this space, lots of art to look at!
