We have an incredible selection of group shows (Art Projects International, 205 Hudson, apexart, Shirley Fiterman Center, Hercules Art to name only a few....) and several photo exhibitions (Hal Bromm, Soho Photo and Alexander and Bonin). Attendees interested in learning more about Chinese Art+ Culture can meet artist Xin Song at Pearl River, check out the temporary exhibition at Think!Chinatown and watch Ling Tang perform traditional Chinese dance. Must sees are also Bortolami Gallery's Richard Aldrich's show and Postmaster's and HPGRP's interactive installations!
