"In curating this show, I chose a cross-disciplinary approach to capture the eclectic fusion of art-forms that has made its way into fine art galleries. Non-traditional means of creative expression such as graffiti, collaging, and new media art have become quintessential to the art market and global pop culture." explains curator Denise Cummings. "'Blended' is all about blurring the lines between methodology and embracing a new fusion of ideas. We are leaving labels at the door and expanding on what it means to be a contemporary fine artist."
'Blended' serves as the curatorial debut for Cummings, and signals a new direction for Whitney Amsterdam Gallery. For the opening on Saturday, March 23rd, there will be a gala champagne reception at 3-5pm.
'Blended' will be on view through May 1st. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 11am-5pm and by private appointment.
