West Chelsea Contemporary presents "Icons & Vandals" opening day
West Chelsea Contemporary will present their newest exhibit, "Icons & Vandals." Recognizable by name and respected for their invaluable contribution, the artists featured in this new show have subverted the contemporary art world throughout the 20th and 21st centuries. Categorized by their emergence, these artists have distinguished themselves through disruption. "Icons & Vandals" seeks to celebrate and highlight monumental works by notable innovators in the contemporary art world.
Beginning May 28, Queer Eye’s Jonathan Van Ness will take over WCC’s "On the Wall" program with a curation of emerging artists, including Lanecia Rouse Tinsely, A’Driane Nieves, and Ben Medansky, to be featured alongside the current exhibition. Also, on Juneteenth, WCC will release a limited run of new works by represented contemporary artist Cey Adams, the founding creative director of Def Jam Records.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display through July 11.
