Infinite Archive: NYPL

The New York Public Library’s Harry Belafonte 115th Street branch will host the exhibition Infinite Archive: NYPL, from Thursday, April 5, 2018 through Tuesday, September 4, 2018 on the second floor of the  Library at 203 West 115th Street. The exhibition introduces a diverse group of 30 artists, each responding to a book, poem, periodical or other archival material from The New York Public Library’s vast collection. The opening reception will be held on Thursday, April 5th from 5:00-6:30 pm.

The art collective, Infinite Archive, curated the exhibition to include artists working across a wide spectrum of media. The pieces range from paintings, prints, photography, assemblage as well as wood, metal and ceramic sculpture in response to fiction, non-fiction, periodicals, and prints in the NYPL’s collection. The breadth of artwork reflects the broad nature of the Library’s holdings.

Responding directly to literary works, each artwork presents a complex dialogue between the artist and the selected text. Housed within a vintage card catalog, visitors are encouraged to discover varied artworks as they open each drawer. Many artworks include interactive elements, such as solving a puzzle, exploring a maze or unfolding an abstract painting.

Artists in the exhibition include; Anna Alfredson, Jose Manuel Arguelles, Ken Augushi, Erica Bailey, Rick Bleier, Sarah Bouchard, Louise Braverman, Tegan Brozyna, Heather Chontos, Susanne Claussen, Carol Collicutt, Vanezza Cruz, Lionel Cruet, Andrea Cukier, Peter Hamlin, Carrie Hawks, Samantha Holmes, Aya Kakeda, Rohin Khemani, Stephanie Lindquist, Stephanie Mulvihill, Maja Padrov, Patrick Perry, Henry Portillo, Mary Preston, Randy Regier, Sarah Rowe, Shelley Stefan, Rachel Sydlowski, and Natalie Collette Wood.

NER BECK: Searching City Sidewalks

Pounding the pavements with your feet and toting a camera in hand can become an urban wonderland of visual discovery, and with each step you take, another piece of haphazardly created street art can be found on any city sidewalk.  A personal object dropped or discarded, refuse that refuses to disappear, a reflection or shadow that catches your eye at just the right angle to create a colorful collage or pattern. Fun faces found in food, and other quirky anthropomorphic characters that seem to be lurking within everyday objects, that may either put a smile on your face or make your hair stand on end. Trash becomes treasure with images of shattered glass, a beat up broom, a torn poster, an old roller skate past its prime, a crying tree and many other fun fantastic items. See heavy metal faces found on manhole covers, iron gates, shovels, rusty radiators, trucks and even meet a utility meter man face to face. So take a walk through this exhibition, shot on the streets of New York and Madrid, and see if you might look down at city sidewalks and become inspired to start your own quest to find these hidden gems in your own neighborhood.
Open Now.  Ends March 26th, 2018

Masood A. W. Warren: Harlem's Everyday People (1969-1985)


In celebration of Black History Month, the George Bruce Library is proud to present original drawings by Masood A. W. Warren. The drawings depict people living their everyday lives on the streets of Harlem from 1969 to 1985. The sketches are on loan from the private collection of Frank Minaya y Willmore.

Born in 1907, Masood Ali Wilbert Warren was a highly accomplished painter and sculptor known primarily for his many bronze busts of high-profile entertainers, celebrities and politicians. He attended the Art Students League in New York in the 1930s, participated in the WPA artists program, initiated by President Franklyn Roosevelt to allow Black artists to receive federal grants for art supplies.  Masood Warren earned a Bachelor of Arts from New York University in 1939 and a Master of Fine Arts from Temple University in 1961. 

Masood Warren has exhibited at the National Academy of Design, the American Watercolor Society, and the National Arts Club, and several of his works are in the Richard Allen Collection at St. Luke's Church in New York City. Masood Warren died in 1995 leaving an unparalled legacy of artwork encompassing the daily scenes and people of New York City. Masood Warren is listed in the 2003 Artist's Bluebook and the 1999 Who Was Who in American Art.
