This event has ended.

With the inauguration of its new building on Columbus Circle, the Museum of Arts and Design presents Open Studios, a new public program that provides museum visitors the opportunity to get a behind-the-scene look into the artistic practice. Artist Long Bin-Chen, whose work is shown as part of the Museum's exhibition "Second Lives: Remixing the Ordinary," will demonstrate his unique techniques during Open Studios. Creating an odd & extraordinary beauty, Long Bin-Chen carves figurative sculptures, Buddha faces, Aztec and Chinese Warriors and land maps out of stacks of books or paper. Embedded in his work is evidence of the rich Chinese tradition of written language and history. Long-Bin Chen was born in Taiwan where he presently resides, after having lived and studied in New York in the nineties. The theme of the converging of Chinese and American cultures is central to his work, as is the notion of consumerism that now informs both cultures.
