FILM MAKER INA ARCHER WILL JOIN WHAF AS GUEST CURATOR
The West Harlem is pleased to have film-maker Ina Archer as a guest curator for our special Armory Week Show. FUƧION NEW YORK is an engaged, curator-driven art show. The organizers will produce up to sixteen curatorial experiences for the public. The show will explore what it takes to live like a full human being. Technology has changed our lives forever. And it affects our relationships, quality of life and how we relate to one another. So, we will look at ways where we can integrate our life, tastes, desires and environment through the lens of curators and artists of color.
