NYCAMS Student Show
NYCAMS is proud to present its 12th undergraduate student show, Temporarily: Out of Order. The survey exhibition features 21 undergraduate students working in a variety of media including: painting, drawing, design, sculpture, video, and more.
Temporarily: Out of Order compares the diverse and contrasting work of artists from throughout the United States. Presenting a range of aesthetics and concepts, this grouping explores the impermanent nature of a disjointed, yet cohesive assembly. Additionally, the collection observes underlying correlations running throughout the work of a new generation of up-and-coming artists.
Nexus: An Art Exhibition at NYCAMS
Nexus, an exhibition by Squire Broel, opens October 1, 2010 at NYCAMS in Manhattan. The show explores the impact that personal interactions and professional experiences between a young artist and renowned contemporary artists have had on Broel's work and artistic development.
In rural, eastern Washington, the Walla Walla Foundry provided the opportunity for Broel to forge unique points of connectivity with a variety of artists through his work as their patineur. Working side-by-side with artists of the highest caliber emboldened Broel to continue his studio practice outside of normal work hours, and for nearly twenty years, Broel has been diligently building a body of work that has been informed and energized by the relationships he experienced during his tenure at the foundry. This exhibition visually examines how each unique nexus has been woven together to form the fabric of Broel's creative work and vision.
TGIM, SP10 Student Show
NYCAMS presents its 11th student show, TGIM: Thank God it’s Monday. Nine artists and four writers have come together to showcase a body of work that aims to challenge and question the realism of our time through a variety of media: painting, illustration, photography, collage, sculpture, installation, and the written and spoken word. The pieces engage the viewer with questions that are pertinent to today’s issues and world while simultaneously offering a fresh, playful, and provocative experience.
Gallery hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday, or by appointment.
Regeneration: Root Beer Float Social 2010 Post-Bacc Show
Regeneration: Root Beer Float Social showcases the divergent practices of artists Nicholas Steindorf and Reid Strelow. Steindorf’s work consists of tightly constructed videos, sculptures and paintings that frequently highlight an electric use of color, with the occasional appearance of glitter. In this exhibition, the selected works reflect his frequent appropriation of artist materials as content.
Strelow’s choice of media in his large-scale sculptures constructed from raw-wood and minimal ink drawings are similarly austere. The controlled use of reconfigured materials allows the regenerative nature of his work to come into focus, as he recycles wood from former projects to build new sculptures.

Guest Lecture: "Comparison of Curatorial Practice Between the United States and China" by Ma Lin
In the past two decades, curators have played an important role in the development of contemporary Chinese art. This lecture analyzes and compares the differences in curatorial practice between the United States and China, as the curatorial practice in China is more recent and has a less established history than in the United States. How do you develop a sound curatorial system and revolutionize the Chinese exhibition system? This lecture by Ma Lin at the New York Center for Art and Media Studies on March 8, 2010 proposes new theories and methodologies for contemporary curatorial practices in China and the creation of new museum standards.
Everyone is Welcome: The Art of K.O.S.
Since 1981, members of K.O.S. have collaborated with artist and educator Tim Rollins. Their collaboratively produced art is in the permanent collection of more than eighty museums and has been the subject of more than one hundred solo exhibitions. The art of Tim Rollins and K.O.S. is currently on view a traveling retrospective, organized by the Tang Museum, at the Frye Art Museum. The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog published by MIT Press.
Over the past three decades, many members of K.O.S. have continued to produce and exhibit independently created art. The remarkable quality and diversity of this work disproves any suggestion that there is a “K.O.S.-style.”Everyone is Welcome: The Art of K.O.S.is the first exhibition devoted exclusively to the work of current and former members of K.O.S.
