• One Selected Artist Wins Their First Solo Exhibition

    (New York City)  Art/Trek NYC, a new television series premiering January 9th at 9 p.m. on NYC life Channel 25, travels to the five New York City boroughs on a quest to discover an emerging artist from each one.
    Art/Trek NYC, created and directed by CJ Follini, takes viewers on a journey to find the next great NYC artist.  The first five episodes introduce a borough co-host who selects an artist for an impromptu exhibition open to critique from neighbors and peers in the Art-V, a graphitized and mobile art gallery.  Co-hosts include cultural luminaries like video and performance artist Kalup Linzy (Le Petit Versailles, All My Churen), curator Wayne Northcross (The Bronx Biennial, The Project Gallery), artist Gabri Christa (Guggenheim Fellowship Recipient), and legendary guitarist Vernon Reid.  All episodes contain music from MTA Arts for Transit “Music under New York” performers.
    Art/Trek NYC is made up of six half-hour, unscripted episodes offering viewers a documentary-style expedition into New York City’s art scene.  The sixth and final episode presents the winner, chosen by the public, and the unveiling of the winner’s first public art show.  Art/Trek NYC premieres Monday, January 9, 2012 at 9 p.m. on NYC life Channel 25, with new episodes airing weekly. NYC life is available in the New York tri-state area on broadcast, cable and satellite channels. Visit nyc.gov/media for local cable and satellite listings.
    “It was important for me to be involved in this exciting project to represent the importance of video and performance in today’s arts discussion,” says Kalup Linzy, Art/Trek NYC co-host.
