MAAC on the Map - Caught in Time
Get “Caught in Time”: MAAC’s new: Contemporary Photographic Exhibit begins mid-month!
Our fourth MAAC on the Map art exhibition launches Thursday, October 19, 2017 – this time a contemporary photographic exhibit entitled “Caught in Time” – and it begins with a stylish reception.
This group show features 11 photographers: Julie Blattberg, Glen C. Goodenough, Shoun A. Hill, Erin Karp, Diana Leidel, Gaspar Marquez, Ira Merritt, Joseph O’Neill, Samuel Partal, Alissa Rosenberg and Sara Sill, and will be open daily to the public until November 19, 2017.
Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the work, curated by Paul Anavian and Michaela Boruta, in the six dedicated gallery spaces at The Manhattan Art & Antiques Center. Guests are also invited to discover the wonders of the remaining 50 galleries populating the space. The artists will be on hand to discuss their works in detail with the public.
The curatorial vision for MAAC on the Map: Caught in Time centers on the excavation of memory. We stand at the boundary between the present and the past, and deconstruct the fragments of our personal histories to find the pathway to the future. We are tracing shadows seeking to understand our transient natures. We get trapped in images of the past, stuck in the quagmire of the forgotten, for a brief moment – caught in time…
MAAC on the Map is a contemporary art exhibition series that aims to give a platform to emerging and established artists at The Manhattan Art & Antiques Center – one of the nation’s largest fine art and historical design centers. It’s a movement to give contemporary artists a new home on the Upper East Side and an opportunity to expose their work to a different audience. The injection of these vital contemporary artists shows that the Upper East Side is a potent destination for innovation, a creative hotspot where experience meets a new breed of artistic disruptor.
This exhibition will also feature the popular “MAAC Mini’s” where each artist participates in a discussion about their artistic process in creating their work at a “meet & greet” brunch on Sunday, October 29 between 1pm – 3pm. This popular event allows guests to hear the artist discuss their artistic process in creating their work.
