This exhibition is a study of how magazines have both driven and reflected the American experience. Unlike regional newspapers, that report local current events, or non-fiction books, which focus on major historical moments and personalities, national magazines have the unique ability to connect trans-local communities of like-minded individuals. In the colonial era, magazines were the harbingers of American thought and identity; the first successful magazine from the 18th century proudly proclaimed itself as “The American …
Galerie Lelong & Co., New York, is pleased to present “Rhe: everything flows;” a group exhibition held in collaboration with Galleries Curate: RHE, an international contemporary art platform initiated by 21 galleries as a response to the ongoing challenges of the pandemic. “Rhe,” from Greek for that which flows, centers on the theme of water: its essential significance to life, as a bridge between people and cultures, and its status under threat from climate change.

The timepiece, designed by Peter Pennoyer Architects, was not on an any of the original renderings but now hangs as an homage to the concourse clock in the old Penn station and the beloved opaline-faced clock in Grand Central Terminal. Train travelers finally have a clear and definable meeting spot on the west side.”=============================================================================
“Last year, the Garment District organized the most fun light-up seesaws to take over Broadway, and it completely brightened up New Yorkers’ dark winter. This year, their public art exhibit is a bit less interactive, but even more stunning!
Opening Monday, January 11, the brand new illuminated “Prismatica” installation will light up Broadway between 39th and 40th Streets.”=============================================================================
