Art Now

From Artists to Art Dealers to Mega Collectors: The Big Art Family.

Another spectacular day just passed by! Today’s class focused on mapping the art world, from artists to auction houses. Students also presented their assignment “Learning to Look” and  they are truly starting to be very critical and analytical. They impressed us all with their fantastic work. After having lunch at the Chelsea Market, we visited The Whitney Biennial. As soon as we started to see the art at The Whitney, students remembered Julie Reiss’s words from yesterday at the Met: “Each museum has their own concept of modern art”. We all agreed that she was so right. We ended our day walking through the High Line all the way to the Vessel. The bravest ones went all the way up to the upper floors of  the vessel and got to enjoy the wonderful views of Lower Manhattan and the Hudson river.
