Join us for a performance by artists Katya Grokhovsky and Nyugen Smith at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park!
Katya Grokhovsky and Nyugen Smith are two of the five artists participating in the group exhibition Other Homes at the Arsenal Gallery. Both interdisciplinary artists will present 15- to 20-minute immersive performances around themes explored in the show.
Curated by Audra Lambert (Antecedent Projects), Other Homes considers the role of organic materials in contemporary art, specifically art that utilizes found objects and assemblage. Marina Andrijcic-Ojeda, Jon Bunge, Grokhovsky, Rachel Hornaday, and Nygugen Smith each consider the effects of natural environments on contemporary art. Their works consider our intimacy with the natural environment while examining the tension created by transforming organic matter into assembled and found artworks.
The exhibit will be on view at the Arsenal Gallery from May 4 through June 15, 2017 on weekdays from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
