Where Art Thou: Kicking Off 2018

No, not this kind of kicking.

New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.

On Campus

  • To kick off the semester, the Arts Initiative at Columbia has opened applications for Student Arts Grants. These grants fund non-curricular arts projects of all shapes and sizes! Applications opened last week and they close on March 2. For more info, click here or stop on by the information session on February 2. Best of luck!
  • Next Wednesday evening at 6 pm (Jan 31), stop by the Diana Event Oval for Art & EquityThis event is a discussion between Toyin Ojih Odutola and Mary Sibande on the role of art in the political sphere, focusing on “esthetics, gender, race, and justice.”

Off Campus

  • Looking for some art that isn’t at the Met or the MoMA? Head over to the Bruce Silverstein gallery in Chelsea before the end of the month to catch a beautiful exhibit of photographs by René Magritte. This intimate gallery offers a small scale alternative to the hustle and bustle of more mainstream NYC museums.
  • Opening today is a modern arts instillation in Madison Square Garden by Erwin Redl, Whiteout. The instillation, breathtaking in its simplicity, features hundreds of white glowing orbs suspended from a steel grid. Wander through the park at night for the best experience.
