The Last Weekly Tour on Wednesday, May 6: Triennial at the New Museum

The New York Arts Exchange's last weekly tour - the end of offering weekly tours - will take place at the New Museum on Wednesday, May 6th. We will meet at 2 pm and end at 4 pm.

Triennial: Surround Audience at the New Museum focuses on the self and identity, the individual and the social, the present and the future. Surveillance, gender identity, popular culture, the environment and physical awareness are among the themes.  It's a curious show - "entertaining," one of my students offered in his critique. I'll take it: "entertaining."  But not exciting.  It's good, but not great.
So it goes. . . . .

Here are a few of the standouts:

Frank Benson, Juliana, 2015

Aleksandra Domanovic, SOHO (Substance of Human Origin, (2015)

Antoine Catala, Distant Feel (2015)

Nadim Abbas (born and lives in Hong Kong), Chamber 665 "Spielberg," 2014-15

To join the last tour, please make a reservation at
Price of tour: $60 per person.  
Triennial: Surround Audience, New Museum, closes on Sunday, May 24th. 

Best wishes and please keep in touch,
Beth New York
aka Beth S. Gersh-Nesic, Ph.D.
Director, New York Arts Exchange
