Ogilvy is christening its new West Manhattan HQ (dubbed The Chocolate Factory aptly enough) with an exhibit that opens tonight called Re-Creation. The event features from work from 12 local and international artists from Japan, Israel, etc.
The announce offers an expectedly artsy explanation for the whole shebang: “The exhibition focuses on the internal dialogue between the artist and the medium in which their creation challenges their very existence — what we all perceive as “art”. The exhibition also examines the ways in which the artist recreates everyday objects and offers us a different point of view. We all look, assess and give meaning to tangible and intangible materials differently.”
Here are examples of what you can expect, from artists Long Bin Chen and Julie Tremblay, etc.
