ARTI.NYC is proud to announce its summer gateway exhibition as a part of "Secret Garden" Art Festival. We bring together celebrity museum-held artists and upcoming names that shape the New York City art scene. Holding the exhibition on a territory of an abandoned military base destroyed by a hurricane we are aiming to remind the collectors and connoisseurs that art is supposed to have its historical and personal significance along with the visual qualities. In the walls of the sTudio 7 Gallery renovated from the old U.S. Army church, we are demonstrating the peaceful way to communicate and create versus mislead and destroy.
The Neo-Domesticity Performance Art Festival is a 100 hour happening showcasing 35 immersive performances at the hybrid-domestic sphere of Glasshouse in Brooklyn. The festival features original works by mid-career and emerging performance artists across disciplines, including theater, dance, literature, and visual art, spread throughout the gallery space of Glasshouse in Brooklyn, which celebrates in 2017 its 10th season.
Taking place in a domestic environment, the festival aims at the intimate/intimidating experience of a home. Works take varied time/space forms: some performances are durational and stretch in time and space or share a room with other performances; others are limited in time or confined to a small cell; while others are allowed to wander around the house, or create micro-environments of their own (by curating their own performance works). The program strives to create a dynamic landscape that fulfills contradicting features of the domestic sphere: nomadic and static, exhibitionist and intimate, public and private, host and guest, etc.
