The New York Art Week Show Feb 28 – March 6th

Art takes Manhattan is back for the New York Art Week at Caelum Gallery (508 W 26th St.) from February 28th to March 6th. “The idea behind the show is offering highly skilled art from all the corners of the world in Chelsea, Manhattan. And we also want to impress. We’ll literally have giants wandering the gallery, ten feet long paintings and projections. On Saturday at 6pm we’ll hold a video art projection session that’s both stylistically sound and profoundly entertaining. ” Manuel Rodriguez, director of Art takes Manhattan told us.

The stated mission of the New York Art Week Show 2017 is opening Manhattan’s art market to highly skilled artists from all over the world in any possible media, but we wonder why their Sunday roundtable only features New York artists.

Underworld series by Carol Sharp

The monumental sculptural group The Wanderers by Spanish artist Maria Lago greets you as you begin exploring a collection of precious delighting art. You will experience an audio visual installation created by a Chinese-born artist Guang Zhu, who uses the confluence of mathematics, philosophy and music to create fluid visual representations. You will gaze at the suspended figures of Cuban artist Franklin Álvarez Fortun, who explores the relationship between freedom and power. A painfully beautiful sculpture Ring Around the Rosie by Brazilian artist Simone Kestelman aims at reminding us to protect those who are helpless. An award-winning photographic artist Carol Sharp invites you to dive into the Underworld of the delicate yet chaotic universe with her series of photographs of nature.

Drive Thru Origami by Rae Broyles

So we ask the director what’s the ethos of this show? “Our approach is all about the artist. The artist knows about art, art historians critics and curators know about periods theories trends… The data is clear: the only reliable predictor of the art that will be culturally relevant tomorrow is the taste of the artists today. Magnus Resch and others have grinded the numbers. We have to listen to the artists, and that’s what we’re going to do on Sunday. We’ll have a roundtable with artists that live deep into New York’s art scene, they know what artists like and what’s going on below the surface of the commercial art of the day. So come Sunday at 6 and discover something new”
