Artist William Wegman presents Around the Park, a new video work, on four outdoor monitors near Madison Square Park’s popular food kiosk, Shake Shack. The approximately seven-minute-long video stars Wegman’s favorite cast of characters as they enjoy a fall day in Madison Square Park. Opening concurrently at Senior & Shopmaker Gallery on Madison Square Park is Wegman Outdoors, an exhibition of the artist’s landscape photographs dating from 1981 through 2007.
William Wegman’s photographs, video tapes, paintings and drawings have been exhibited in museums and galleries internationally. Funney/Strange, a retrospective of Wegman’s work organized by the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts, with a catalogue published by Yale University Press, completes its two-year tour this fall at the Wexner Center for the Arts in Columbus, Ohio.
