Current Exhibition

Art, Process and the Aesthetic Experience: A 92Y Meural Exhibition

September 8 – November 14, 2016

Opening Reception: Friday, October 14, 5-6:45 pm

What do you see when you look at art? How would your aesthetic experience change, if you could trace the artist’s creative process?

Using digital technology to open the artist’s process, this exhibition explores ideas of cognition, context and the creative journey.

Bringing together seven teaching artists from the Gilda and Henry Block School of the Arts, original artworks are exhibited adjacent to Meural Canvas displaying the contemporary or historical pieces that have informed them.

The exhibition asks questions like:

  • What are the start-up ideas in art that brought the artist to this point?
  • How does this knowledge change our response to the exhibited work?
  • What does democratization and open accessibility mean for the future of art?
