What has the Art21 staff been up to lately? Seeing art of course! We present a selection of our favorite exhibitions on view now in New York City.
“I loved By the People: Designing a Better America at the Cooper Hewitt Museum and wound up reflecting on how so many artists, whether they deal in ‘design’ or not, are crafting ways to suggest solutions for everyday problems—both personal and communal. Looking forward to comparing with my students how the designers in this show address social problems as compared with our new Season 8 artist, Pedro Reyes.”
