Secession 2015 : Living Art Gallery on Governors Island
Aug 22, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
“To every age its art. To every art its freedom.”
Exquisite Corpse Company brings you back in time to explore the magic and genius of the Vienna Secession in, Secession 2015.
This August and September, the world of the Vienna Secession will be brought to life, in an aging Victorian house on Governors Island. Using the work of some of the greatest Viennese painters and musicians of the early 20th century we’ve challenged contemporary artists to create work inspired by some of their more pivotal pieces. Come immerse yourself in our living gallery to explore the stories behind the paintings, traversing inside the minds, lives, and worlds of these brilliant artists.
So take a day to secede from the city, and jump on the ferry to spend an afternoon with ECC on NYC’s hidden oasis, Governors Island.
