The newest exhibition from Quin Arts, “In Bloom,” launches May 10 at the Quin, located at 57th Street and Sixth Avenue. The group exhibition, co-curated by Quin Arts curator DK Johnston and New York-based curator Lori Zimmer, promises a very fresh take on floral-themed works to celebrate spring. Zimmer and Johnston have invited 29 artists to use their signature styles to create floral-themed pieces, for a light, airy and warm exhibition to pair with New York’s most magical season.
Original works by Alexis Hilliard, Annika Connor, ASVP, Beau Stanton, C215, CRASH (John Matos), Elizabeth Winnel, Ellannah Sadkin, Erik Foss, Galo, Icy & Sot, Jamie Martinez, Jeremy John Kaplan, Joanne Leah, Jon Burgerman, Kathryn Rose, Keya Tama, Logan Hicks, Mando Marie, Michael DeFeo, Mindy Linkous, Nick Walker, Pure Evil (Charley Uzzell Edwards), Robert Malmberg, Ron English, Sean Augustine March, Vahge and Wulf Von Treu will adorn the Quin’s walls.
The "In Bloom" exhibition will be on display from May 10th - July 10th, 2018.
About Quin Arts
The Quin Arts program makes art and its creators accessible, intimately connecting guests with New York culture and its creative community through a bi-monthly exhibition series, interactive artist salons, a remarkable permanent collection, and special features such as a 15-foot high abstract video art wall. Curated by DK Johnston, previous exhibits include Light Waves by award-winning photographer Robert Malmberg, Creative Chaos, a vibrant collection of large-scale paintings by Corno, an exclusive preview of Eric Zener’s land series, and Heritage—a collection of iconic photography from Burt Glinn, Erich Hartmann, Dennis Stock, and Elliott Erwitt, presented in partnership with Magnum Photos. Blek le Rat, the “Father of stencil graffiti,” created a series of unique lithographs, collectively entitled Escaping Paris, at the New York Academy of Art for the Quin during his tenure as artist in residence. Quin Arts presented an exceptional collaboration between the hotel and D’Angelico Guitars of America. This installation combined two artistic forms –music and art–in a group show wherein 14 D’Angelico guitars were each reimagined by a different artist. Participating artists, including The London Police, Tavar Zawacki aka ABOVE, Nick Walker, Pure Evil, Amanda Marie, SP38, Wulf Treu, ASVP, Mindy Linkous, and Alex Yanes, were either former artists-in-residence or are represented in the hotel’s permanent collection. Quin Arts has garnered critical acclaim from The New York Times, Forbes, Condé Nast Traveler, and Harper’s Bazaar Art.
