5 New York City Art Events to Catch in August

The dog days of summer have descended upon New York City, and one of our favorite places to flee while we wait for boot weather is Manhattan’s (mostly air-conditioned) galleries and museums. This month, there’s plenty to do and see on the art scene, but here are a few shows we’re looking forward to most.

13 Most Wanted Men: Andy Warhol and the 1964 World’s Fair at the Queens Museum
This month is one of the last months to catch this historically significant and iconic exhibit. The initial reveal of this piece featuring 13 mugshots of wanted men was considered a scandal to be covered up—literally. Fifty years later, however, we use these mugshots of infamous men to celebrate the essence and rebellion of the icon that is Warhol.

Behind the Scenes: Art Gallery Installation in New York

This week, we completed a fascinating project for one of our longtime clients, the Ricco Maresca Gallery in Chelsea. The exhibit we installed, called I.D. Photo Badge Portraiture, consisted of 250 workers’ photo badges from the 1930s through the 1950s, hung side-by-side around the gallery.

What we found so interesting about this particular exhibit, was the idea behind it. According to a statement about the exhibit from the gallery, “These vintage badges, from a possibly simpler time, were all that was necessary to prove one’s authentic self and place in society. The concept of identity is increasingly complex. Contemporary identification badges such as Facebook and other social platforms on the Internet give us the false impression we have complete control over our private identities, while at the same time, we are forced to take extreme measures to prove our public identities.”

To display the badges, we hung them a few inches apart around the perimeter of the space. Here’s a glimpse at what it took to hang each of these badges in a straight line around the gallery, plus a closer look at a few of the badges.
