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.
This survey of portraiture by the renowned American photographer Michael Halsband will span over four decades of the artist’s work, including the iconic photographs from the 1985 Warhol/Basquiat with Boxing Gloves series and 35mm film of The Rolling Stones live performance during their Tattoo You tour.
