Moderated by Curators Scott Avett and David Kratz
with exhibition artists Eric Fischl, John Alexander, and Lucy Winton
Join the About Face curators along with exhibition artists from ABOUT FACE to discuss their work in the intimate setting of our galleries. The talk will be followed by a live performance by Scott Avett and G.E. Smith!
Co-curated by musician and painter Scott Avett, lead singer of the folk-rock band The Avett Brothers, and David Kratz, president of the New York Academy of Art, ABOUT FACE features sculpture, paintings and photographs, and brings celebrated East End artists together with Academy artists to examine the diverse ways human beings are presented in the art of today. In the era of the ubiquitous “selfie,” this exhibition asks viewers to slow down and consider the story inherent in every human face.
Join us for a post-talk reception sponsored by Ozymandias, Wine by Artists, for Artists.
World-class music and delicious food will come together in support of live Jazz and the people who have made it a truly iconic musical genre.
