Tale of two cities: the art world in Mexico vs. New York City
On Saturday, June 14th, 8:00- 9:00PM, New York artist and School of the Visual Arts professor Steve deFrank will introduce the Tale of two cities: a comparison of the art world in Mexico and New York City. The salon will allow insight into two art markets: Mexico's vibrant and burgeoning scene, and that of New York's booming city. This event is a feature of InSitu Work's Website Launch and Pop-Up Exhibition, occurring June 11th - 15th, in which the work of new and emerging artists will be displayed. After the salon, attendees will have the opportunity to meet artists from the exhibition.
InSitu Works is an online marketplace and advisory that offers seasoned and novice collectors the opportunity to discover, learn about and acquire contemporary art. Sponsored by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund and Artspire (part of the New York Foundation for the Arts), InSitu Works was conceived as an alternative to help collectors find high-quality artwork and grant emerging artists a platform for exposure and development. Purchases made through InSitu Works directly contribute to the promotion and development of emerging artists.
Why “InSitu”? In situ in latin means in place, or in the original position. In the context of art, in situ refers to a work of art made specifically for a host site, taking into account the space and location in which the work of art is installed or exhibited.
