ART

ABOUT FACE

Curated by Scott Avett and David Kratz 
Presented by New York Academy of Art

July 28 through September 17, 2017

TODAY is the FINAL DAY – Galleries close at 6 PM!

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, which will feature sculpture, paintings, and photographs, brings celebrated artists, many from the East End, together with emerging artists to examine the diverse ways human beings are presented in portraiture today.

The exhibition’s theme is closely tied to the Academy’s mission of promoting and preserving the tradition of figurative art within the contemporary art world. How we look at people says as much about who we are as who they are. In the era of the ubiquitous selfie, this exhibition asks the viewers to slow down and consider the story inherent in every human face.
