a carefully curated calendar & cumulative catalog of new york city's most interesting art exhibitions and events. hand picked by Arthur Seen & Team

Closes April 28: “Emotion” Eric FinziSite/109, 109 Norfolk St., NYC (bt Rivington and Delancey)The exhibition showcases Finzi’s mixed media and epoxy resin paintings as well as three new large-scale installations, all centering on a single subject: Augustine, the documented patient of neurologist Professor Jean-Martin Charcot at the notorious Salpêtrière Hospital. Institutionalized for hysteria in the 1870s, the young woman was, for many years, the subject of experimental treatments and lenghty photographic documentation of her episodic outbursts. After several years of incarceration, Augustine disguised herself as a man and escaped the psychiatric ward, never to be seen again.
