On Tuesday, September 12, 2017 the Manhattan Art & Antiques Center will launch the third contemporary art exhibition in the MAAC on the Map series entitled “Mortal Coil”, at a stylish reception. This group show features the mastery of 12 exceptional artists including: Lawrence Aarons, Adina Andrus, Becky Bailey, Andre Beverley, Camilla Marie Dahl, Iulia-Lavinia Falcan, Victoria General, Amy Hughes, Dinora Justice, Lena Miskulin, Jeffrey Morabito and Alan Richards. This exhibition will be open daily to the public until September 30, 2017.

Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the work, curated by Paul Anavian and Michaela Boruta, in the six dedicated gallery spaces at The Manhattan Art & Antiques Center. The guests are also invited to discover the wonders of the remaining 50 galleries populating the space. The artists will be on hand to discuss their works in detail with the public.

This exhibition will also feature the popular “MAAC Mini’s” where each artist participates in a discussion about their artistic process in creating their work at a “meet & greet” brunch on Sunday, September 17 between 1pm – 3pm. The accompanying lecture series that aligns with the vision of MAAC on the MAP: Mortal Coil, will include a talk by a renowned lecturer on Thursday 21 at 6:30pm.

Curatorial Vision
The curatorial vision for MAAC on the Map: Mortal Coil embodies the place where we mirror, interact with and deconstruct the human form in all of its tumultuous bustle. It is the liminal space where our spiraling DNA becomes story. It is where we face our natures and interrogate how we communicate. It is our visceral response to the psychological, emotional and physical triggers that spark self reflection.

MAAC on the Map is a contemporary art exhibition series that aims to give a platform to emerging and established artists at The Manhattan Art & Antiques Center – one of the nation’s largest fine art and historical design centers.

MAAC on the Map is a movement to give contemporary artists a new home on the Upper East Side and an opportunity to expose their work to a different audience. The injection of these vital contemporary artists shows that the Upper East Side is a potent destination for innovation, a creative hotspot where experience meets a new breed of artistic disruptor.
