exhibition opening

[2nd Floor]

Opening of the exhibition "muse muse" emphasizing the relationship between curator and artist— muse muse, a muse muse, muse amuse, muse muse muse—the alliteration itself is almost inspiring.

Special performance by Jahmal B Golden curated in by India Salvor Menuez and movie screening by NY Times favorite Nemo Librizzi, curated in by Theo Constantinou.

While the trope of the artist and muse evokes a dusty and nostalgic image of classical inspiration, as conveyed by an artist such as Jean-Léon Gérôme’s 1890 Pygmalion and Galatea, or in the idea of bohemian artists working all night high in a garret under the almost divine inspiration of genius and ego, this show refocuses the concept of muse to directly display the real, transformative, and raw link between curator and artist, between artist and curator. This is the essential relationship upon which this show revolves. It is almost a reflection, perhaps not clear, perhaps distorted, or enigmatic.
