American Museum of Folk Art invites to the exhibition "Experienced New York"which takes place in the gallery "Self-Taught Genius".
The exhibition explores the connection between the art of self-study and the spirit of New York through a selection of works from the collection of the American Museum of Popular Art.
The distinctive magic of a megalopolis is often attributed to its large, diverse, and enterprising population, which calls the city and its environs home. Pictures by artists Ralph Fasanella (1914–1997), Malki Zeldis (b. 1931), Gregorio Marzana (1906–1997) and Harry Liberman (1880–1983), as well as many others, reflect the daily life around the city from recognizable urban landscapes and private home scenes to abstract works that reveal the inner life through the act of creation.
