Eye openers

New art and new artists are being showcased in the Tang Museum’s “opener” programs—a series of innovative, interdisciplinary events and exhibits conceived by up-and-coming artists and often developed expressly for the Tang’s architecture, mission, and audience.
     The opener series began with last year’s exhibit of Jonathan Seliger’s folded, layered, and glued canvases. With the help of a recent $50,000 grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, the series continues with Nayland Blake’s installations and videos, paintings by Pakistan-born Shahzia Sikander, the food- and desire-themed paintings of Julia Jacquette ’86, and several other exhibitions.
