"Overall, these artists will foster a critical conversation about how art is more than just surface, technique, and emotion; art is equally about ideas, concepts, and intellectual depth. Moreover, this group show highlights how the visual arts often embody concepts in novel or unexpected ways, underscoring how images have the power to shift perspectives, attitudes, and pre-conceived assumptions."
"NYA Gallery and Gallery 104 are pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Olga Feshina. Curated by Shane Townley, the show will feature a total of eight paintings, many of which have not been previously exhibited. These works explore core motifs related to the artist’s ongoing “New Tech Girls” series, namely beauty, image construction and distortion, identity, self-fashioning, and presentation."
"NYA Gallery is pleased to be participating with more than 20 other cultural institutions in lower Manhattan in order to highlight a diverse and stimulating range of contemporary media, including fine art, design, fashion, dance, music, VR, video, and craft."
