This event has ended.

The Artists at Home and Abroad exhi­bi­tion series is a rep­re­sen­ta­tion of both emerg­ing and estab­lished artists on an inter­na­tional scale. This exhibit fea­tures excit­ing, new inves­ti­ga­tions in con­tem­po­rary image mak­ing. The work explores every­thing from the inter­sec­tion of abstrac­tion and fig­u­ra­tion to the sig­nif­i­cance of high and low art. The unique per­spec­tives of the artists on view cre­ate a lively, cross-cultural interchange.

Liv­ing in the midst of rapid glob­al­iza­tion cre­ates inter­stices between dif­fer­ent cul­tures. This series high­lights the sig­nif­i­cance of exhibit­ing a vari­ety of works in a plu­ral­is­tic art world. Inspired by salon-style hang­ing, most com­monly attrib­uted to the Salon de Paris held dur­ing the 18th and 19th cen­turies; Broad­way Gallery NYC con­tin­ues this legacy with a con­tem­po­rary and fresh out­look. Col­lec­tively, this show invites patrons to ini­ti­ate a dia­logue between artists and the art world. Fol­low­ing a trend of pre­vi­ous exhi­bi­tions at Broad­way Gallery NYC, this show pays trib­ute to the for­mat of a salon hang­ing. It is a tra­di­tion that awak­ens con­tem­po­rary cul­ture to a dynamic collective consciousness.

In addi­tion to the exhi­bi­tion on dis­play at Broad­way Gallery NYC, are sev­eral con­cur­rent Inter­net projects, and a print cat­a­log. Fur­ther­more, this exhibit offers writ­ers and view­ers an excit­ing oppor­tu­nity to sub­mit essays and com­ments on the nature and sig­nif­i­cance of bien­ni­als, fairs and pub­lic expo­sure for new and emerging artists.

Uti­liz­ing the max­i­mum floor-to-ceiling gallery space acti­vates the wall with art­works in var­i­ous media by artists, each of whom offer a unique per­spec­tive to the show. These artists have trans­formed the gallery walls into a com­pendium of gen­er­a­tional takes on fig­u­ra­tion, por­trai­ture, and abstrac­tion. The result is an intense, artistic zeitgeist.

The speed of inter­ac­tions via new media allows for global artis­tic con­ver­sa­tions pre­vi­ously unheard before. In an attempt to inte­grate the numer­ous artis­tic lan­guages, this exhibit was installed in a unique for­mat. Two long par­al­lel walls have been care­fully installed to cre­ate dia­logue in the spa­tial order. Artists at Home and Abroad allows the viewer access to some of the past and cur­rent piv­otal artis­tic ideas while intro­duc­ing newer tal­ent, to gen­er­ate fresh cre­ative energy through unexpected juxtapositions.
