The art world’s past and future are on display–and members of the SVA community are right in the middle of it all. At the National Academy Museum, 1083 Fifth Avenue, the “High Times, Hard Times: New York Painting 1967-1975” exhibition includes work from faculty members Lynda Benglis and Mary Heilmann. The show collects important works by 37 artists from this groundbreaking era, when new mediums and experimental abstractions transformed the art world. “High Times, Hard Times” is on view through Sunday, April 22.
Looking ahead, the design and apparel company Brooklyn Industries has turned one of its retail outlets into Williamsburg’s latest gallery. Located at 184 Broadway at the corner of Driggs Avenue, the Brooklyn Industries Contemporary Art Center’s inaugural exhibition, “Out of the Loop,” features new work by a half-dozen up-and-coming artists, including a video piece by alumnus Kate Gilmore (MFA 2002 Fine Arts). “Out of the Loop” will run through Sunday, March 25.
