The opening reception: Thursday, July 25th 7p through 11p.
See.Me is proud to present a selection of our members representing over 100 different nations. This exquisite collection of work features a diverse range of mediums, styles, influences, and inspirations. The work displayed will include sculpture, works on paper in one of the most exquisite venues in New York City at Angel Orensanz Foundation 172 Norfolk Street, New York.
The exhibition is organised by See.Me, a mobile community created by a group of artists in New York City. The international community is built of artists, musicians, photographers and fashion enthusiasts who connect to a worldwide audience both online and in live events and exhibitions. See.Me believes that talent deserves endless attention and that there are ways for creatives to get support and exposure outside of conventional channels.
With this in mind, they created an online platform for creatives to share their work. In addition to providing our members with the tools they need to gain exposure and support, we regularly feature artists on our homepage and host contests that offer career-furthering grants and awards.
See.Me started as a modest side-project in 2008 under the name Artists Wanted. Since then, we’ve hosted dozens of shows and exhibitions, displayed the work of hundreds of thousands of artists, and distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of cash grants and other awards.
Others on See.Me: I-D MAGAZINE, December 14, 2012: 'What began as a modest side-project in 2008 under the name Artists Wanted has evolved into a global community of creatives sharing their work with an audience of millions.' The New York Times, June 17, 2012: In a feature article, the New York Times calls See.Me (formerly Artists Wanted) a 'website that illuminates artists,' and 'identifies artistic talent, exposing it to an international audience.'
