That early experience of validation can be life changing to a young artist. Last year T.A.G. had shows at BravinLee programs in Chelsea and Salon 94 Freemans on the Lower East Side. Their website, which is regularly updated with young artists work, is

Joan Semmel: A Lucid Eye - Bronx Museum of The Arts
Through June 09, 2013 - Bronx

Well known for the uncompromising feminist tone of her early work, Joan Semmel has turned her attention over the past decade to the process of image making. Photography has played a central role in Semmel's work since she decided to represent the figure in the early 1970s. However, Semmel's use of photography has often escaped the viewer whose attention focuses on the depicted image. In 2005, Semmel began to afford the viewer a glimpse into her method by aiming the camera towards a mirror, thus capturing the artist in the process of composing the image. Lately, using the camera and mirrors, Semmel has created a haunting series of self-portraits that evoke the passage of time. Organized by Antonio Sergio Bessa.

Reacting to this new cultural reality, After the Museum stages and presents a series of installations and programs that reveal the largely hidden research component of the design practice, while examining cultural institution's role in the shaping of design past, present, and future.

These pieces represent a range of historical moments, cultures and medium and will be hung salon style throughout the gallery.

CMA will set up hands-on stations that will encourage visitors to become part of the exhibit, including reimagined versions of a typical self-portrait station. The CMA Media Lab will also create a photo booth in which visitors can take photos that will be projected on the wall. These photos will stream into a montage that will be accessioned into the collection and will also serve as a fascinating time-lapse of the exhibit as a whole. Face to Face also offers aspiring young artists the opportunity to submit their own works for a chance to become part of the museum's Permanent Collection. CMA will accept 25 original original works, in honor of 25 years of operation, to be selected by the museum's curatorial team. One selected piece will be chosen by an online viewer's choice campaign, hosted through CMA's website and social media platforms.
