New York, New York

VISIT

From the classic to the contemporary, art aficionados are spoilt for choice in the Big Apple. For a closer look at the works of European masters such as Rembrandt and Renoir, make a beeline for The Frick Collection. The building itself is an architectural wonder; the former residence of industrialist Henry Clay Frick, it was recently redesigned in an opulent 18th-century style.

 

WATCH

For the opera lover, there’s usually something going on at The Metropolitan Opera, which can be found at Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Performances that will be taking place in 2018-19 include Mozart’s Don Giovanni and La Clemenza di Tito, as well as Puccini’s La Bohème.

 

RELAX

Thanks to the tireless work of the Public Art Fund, opportunities abound for members of the New York public to interact with contemporary art in an urban environment. One show to look forward to, in October 2018, is Tear of the Cloud, a three-week-long exhibition by New York-based multimedia artist Tony Oursler. The multimedia work will be projected on the West 69th Street Transfer Bridge, the Hudson River, and the surrounding landscape, creating a dramatic visual and auditory experience inspired by what Oursler describes as “the mnemonic effect of the river and the many intertwined tropes associated with the Hudson Valley region.”
