Vernissages + Performances | NYC, Jack Tilton Gallery and Martos

Spring has finally arrived in NYC and a new energy seems to renew NYC visual arts. Dance performances harmoniously merge with art installations at two art galleries ---Martos in Chelsea and Jack Tilton in the Upper East Side--- with a remembrance of the 60' happenings

Probably the most outstanding intervention in terms of site-specificity happened yesterday at Jack Tilton's gallery where Malcolm Low's choreography beautifully interacted with Jarbas Lopes's sculptures. The Brazilian artist's sculptures are based on functional objects such as bicycles and bungee chords in "a celebration of life, art and movement".
