Dear members and friends,

 

We would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt gratitude for the support that you have provided over the last year. It's been a challenging time for all art institutions in New York and more than ever we value your involvement and continued feedback.

 

We are excited to share with you our newly redesigned website which launches today in a beta version. Please stay tuned as we add new features and information in the upcoming weeks. We hope that this new online platform will make it easier for you to stay informed and involved in the upcoming events and programs at CAM.

 

Since its creation in 2002, the Museum has been at the forefront of creative endeavors and has become a fertile ground for many voices through artist talks, dance and musical performances. Over the last 9 years we have featured over 1,000 artists in more than 150 exhibitions focusing on social relevance, global reach and diversity.

 

With a commitment to timely and relevant programming, this year CAM will be hosting many more performances as we continue to develop existing and new partnerships with other innovative cultural institutions.

 

We hope you will join us for this exciting year ahead.

 

Respectfully yours,

 

Dorothea Keeser, President

Jean Miotte: A Retrospective

 

Le Debat

While Miotte's work remains committed to the Utopian aspects of gestural abstraction, he has continued to grow, fighting the repetition of a signature style, constantly pushing the boundaries and possibilities of the line, the gesture and the liquidity of paint.

  
  

OPEN through May 7th.

Andrea Mete:

Young Eyes 

mete
Denouncing a conventional cohesive narrative, photographer Andrea Mete insists upon taking us on an ambiguous photographic journey where disparate stories are random and fragmented.   
Taken collectively, they can be loosely woven together but Mete playfully leaves this to the whim of the individual viewer.       
  
  
OPENING: April 26th, 6-8pm 

 

Cori Kresge

Dance 

at one
The piece, Sapience I-X "Human Story", portrays a dystopian vision of a future world where no animal species remain.  Since humans have nothing against which to measure their own humanity, they must find new ways to define themselves collectively and individually.
