The art world has officially kicked off its season of crazy events and new exhibitions. Summer closures have turned into new exhibitions in our favorite galleries, inspiring conversations between artists and audiences. But as the exhibitions begin to change, so does the weather as we begin our annual trek into the beautiful chill of fall. For many, this is the time to stay indoors buried nose deep in a much loved book. If you are that person and you missed the 2015 New York Art Book Fair and are low on books, don’t sweat it! We have the opportunities that will validate your practices while still entertaining your love for art without having to leave your couch.
Terry Smith book launch at NeueHouse
Terry Smith is a renowned art historian, art critic, professor, and artist and is launching his second publication, “Talking Contemporary Curating”, as part of Independent Curators International series Perspectives in Curating.
