Open Studios 2013 is an annual event of the EFA Studio Program that invites the public to come explore and interact with our vibrant and diverse community of 75 contemporary artists.
EFA artists work in a wide range of media and artistic sensibilities, offering a significant slice of contemporary art culture. Rarely can the public visit so many internationally recognized artists working under one roof in the heart of Midtown Manhattan.
Join us at EFA for Open Studios 2013!
About EFA Studio Program: Founded in 1998 as a program of the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, the EFA Studio Program was created to provide affordable studio space within a community of artists, facilitate career development, and promote public and critical exposure for our members. EFA Studios is housed on eight floors of the EFA building located in Midtown Manhattan's Fashion District, in close proximity to the city's primary gallery districts. Members are selected by a jury of respected arts professionals, through a competitive application process. EFA Studios facilitates interaction with dealers, curators, and critics to provide continued development for member-artists. Unique among studio programs in New York City, EFA Studios is one of the few remaining arts organizations still providing long-term workspace in Manhattan.

"Last Year at Marienbad redux"
THROUGH OCT. 26, 2013 at EFA PROJECT SPACE
Curated by James Voorhies and produced by Bureau for Open Culture
Last Year at Marienbad redux is an exhibition, public program and publication that explores the way fact and fiction merge to form accepted knowledge about people, places, events and politics. Drawing on the use of elliptical conversations in the 1961 film Last Year at Marienbad by Alain Resnais as a point of departure, the exhibition features works of art that utilize various cinematic conventions, such as editing, character development, narrative, mise-en-sc�ne and montage, to reveal how our understanding of reality is often mediated by those very cinematic techniques.
