Glob­al­iza­tion cre­ates unex­pected rela­tion­ships and con­trasts in con­tem­po­rary art. This series focuses on the sig­nif­i­cance of exhibit­ing a vari­ety of works in a plu­ral­is­tic art world. Inspired by salon-style hang­ing, most com­monly attrib­uted to the Salon de Paris held dur­ing the 18th and 19th cen­turies; Broad­way Gallery NYC con­tin­ues this legacy with a con­tem­po­rary and fresh out­look. Fol­low­ing a trend of pre­vi­ous exhi­bi­tions at Broad­way Gallery NYC, this show pays trib­ute to the for­mat of a salon hang­ing. It is a tra­di­tion that awak­ens con­tem­po­rary cul­ture to a dynamic col­lec­tive consciousness.

A few notable themes in this exhibit that cross cul­tures are roman­ti­cism, spir­i­tu­al­ity, and human­ity. Part of an ongo­ing series, Artists at Home and Abroad reaches out to the diverse com­mu­nity of New York. In addi­tion to the exhi­bi­tion on dis­play at Broad­way Gallery NYC, are sev­eral con­cur­rent Inter­net projects, and a print cat­a­log. Fur­ther­more, this exhibit offers writ­ers and view­ers an excit­ing oppor­tu­nity to sub­mit essays and com­ments on the nature and sig­nif­i­cance of bien­ni­als, fairs and pub­lic expo­sure for new and emerg­ing artists.

This exhibit uses the space as another medium alto­gether; incor­po­rat­ing the max­i­mum floor-to-ceiling gallery space acti­vates the wall with art works in var­i­ous media by artists, each of whom offer a unique per­spec­tive to the show. These artists have trans­formed the gallery walls into a com­pendium of gen­er­a­tional takes on fig­u­ra­tion, por­trai­ture, and abstraction.

Vis­i­tors will be sur­prised to see the stun­ning results. The speed of inter­ac­tions via new media allows for global artis­tic con­ver­sa­tions pre­vi­ously unheard before. In an attempt to inte­grate the numer­ous artis­tic lan­guages, this exhibit was installed in a unique for­mat. Two long par­al­lel walls have been care­fully installed to cre­ate dia­logue in the spa­tial order. Artists at Home and Abroad allows the viewer access to some of the past and cur­rent piv­otal artis­tic ideas while intro­duc­ing newer tal­ent, to gen­er­ate fresh cre­ative energy through unex­pected juxtapositions.
